Chillar Party to open IIFA film fest

MUMBAI: Chillar Party, Salman Khan‘s debut film as a producer, will be the opening film at the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) festival that would be held across four cities in Ontario in Canada. Co-produced by UTV Motion Pictures, Chillar Party, a light-hearted comedy, revolves around the lives of seven children who defeat the odds and prove their loyalty to a friend.

Said Khan, "Chillar Party is very close to my heart, the concept appealed to me and the children‘s performances were endearing. This is the first film under SKBH (Salman Khan Being Human) Productions and we felt there was no better place to screen the movie than at the IIFA film festival. For me, IIFA is the home-ground and it can‘t get bigger than IIFA in Toronto," said the actor.

This year, the film festival has been designed keeping in mind the Punjabi population across four cities of Greater Toronto Area (GTA) -- Toronto, Markham, Brampton and Mississuaga -- where the screenings will take place.

The assortment of films are a mix of Bollywood classics and blockbusters based in and around Punjab. Some of the films to be showcased are Rang De Basanti, Dabangg, Chashme Badoor, Dil Bole Hadippa, Veer Zaara, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Yamla Pagla Deewana.

The film festival will be held as part of the IIFA weekend, an annual celebration of Indian cinema on international shores. While the IIFA weekend kick-starts on 23 June, the three-day film fest will be thrown open on 24 June.
