MUMBAI: Ashim Ahluwalia‘s ‘Miss Lovely‘ will represent India in the non-competitive section of the 65th Cannes Film Festival this year.
The film will be showcased along with 16 others from different countries in the ‘Un Certain Regard‘ section.
The film is set in the lower depths of Mumbai‘s ‘C‘ grade film industry and follows the story of two brothers who are producers of sleazy horror films in the mid-1980s.
However, there are no Indian films that feature in the competition section of the festival which has as many as 22 movies including ‘Moonrise Kingdom‘, ‘Cosmopolis‘, ‘The Paperboy‘ and ‘Reality‘ from across the globe.
The festival will be held from 16 to 27 May.
