Pritish Nandy Communications (PNC) and Daily Multimedia
Ltd have come together to release the Rajat Kapoor-directed
film Fatso on 4 May.
Starring Ranvir Shorey, Gul Panag, Purab Kohli, Neil
Bhoopalam and Gunjan Bakshi, the film takes audiences
through an accidental incident that leads to Purab Kohli
and the 300 pound protagonist, played by Ranvir Shorey,
into exchanging lives between heaven and earth. In short,
Fatso is all about love packaged with a calorie count.
The out and out comedy is already a subject of heated
discussion overseas, the film having traveled to several
international festivals including the South Asian International
Film Festival in New York, Indian Film Festival of Los
Angeles and Shanghai International Film Festival amongst
PNC producer Pritish Nandy, "Fatso is funny,
romantic, magical. Rajat Kapoor is at his finest as
a director in the charming tradition of Raghu Romeo,
Mixed Doubles and Mithya. Comedies rarely make it
to top rung international film festivals."
The film was chosen as recipient of the prestigious
Golden Palm Award at the Mexico International Film
