festival director Ahmed Muztaba Zamal, We are
honored and thankful to Rohit for having us host the
South-East Asia premiere of Life! Camera Action at the
film relates the story of a young girl, Reina, played
by actress Dipti Mehta who is threatened by her parents
(Subodh Batra and Prabha Batra) to be disowned, if
she insists on an unstable career like filmmaking,
instead of doing what usually is the norm -- become
a doctor, engineer or architect.
am happy to see our film chosen to screen in Cinema
of the World at the prestigious DIFF 2012," said
Gupta in a statement.
12th DIFF will feature over 200 films from 55 countries
from six continents and will be attended by celebrities
and dignitaries from around the world.
DIFF is one of the most prestigious film events in
the international film festival circuit and has been
dedicated in celebrating the global mainstream in
film and its social relevance for nineteen years.
