Oh! People in my country love cinema and it certainly plays a very important role in our lives. There are so many people who take advance tickets to watch films of their favourite starts.

I love romantic movies the most. For me, the emotion love is the most important emotion of all and I love it when two people fall in love with each other.

But, apart from romantic movies, I also like watching comedy movies and sometimes the motivational movies, the ones based on true life incidents.

Which was the first movie that you watched?
The first time I watched an entire movie was Stuart Little. Our school took the students who had subscribed to the newspaper to a movie hall. For us, most of the class had subscribed.

It was an amazing experience, not only because it was the first time I was watching a movie but because with people I enjoy my school days.
