Director Imtiaz Ali is set to present Mangesh Hadawale's
upcoming film, Dekh Indian Circus. This is the
first time that the Jab We Met director is presenting
a film he isn't directly involved in.
film has already won the 'Best Picture' award at the
Busan Film Festival and the noted director hopes that
it will find favour with viewers in India.
Indian Circus is the heartwarming tale of a mother
taking her children to the circus. "After watching
the film, I realised that it should reach the maximum
audience. It's the most colorful way of showing the
goings on an Indian village. It is meaningful as well
as an entertaining film," said Ali.
you look at Indian films these days, most of them
are very urban. It's ironic because the maximum population
lives in villages. This film is set in a small village
in the outskirts of Jaisalmer, representing the life
there through extraordinary performances and stunning
visuals," he added.
film is Hadawale's second after his debut directorial
Tingya that won the National Film Award in
the 'Best Child Artist' category.
