Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar, who has made films like "Vicky Donor", "Madras Cafe" and "Piku", says he is open to the idea of making a film on exam pressure as he feels it is a problem that is rampant in society. "Yes, I will definitely look into this in the future," Sircar, who is associated with the second edition of the 'Release The Pressure' campaign, told IANS.

Commenting on education stress, he said one of the key reasons is the tendency to make comparisons, which causes depression among children. "It disturbs them mentally and lowers their confidence... (Yet) it is rampant in society, and parents do these things (without) realising how it affects the children," said the filmmaker.
