NEW DELHI: Renowned filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s Ugly, which has already done well in the film festival circuit, is expected to be released in September in the country.
The film received a world premiere at Director’s Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival in 2013 and has since been screened at several film festivals including Puchon, Warsaw and Melbourne.
The Indian premiere of the film is taking place at the Ladakh International Film Festival next month, and the commercial release will be on 19 September.
A psychological thriller, Ugly deals with a situation where no one can trust anyone amidst the scenes of brutality and psychological games after 10 year old Kali goes missing from the car she was left in by her father.
The film features Tejaswini Kolhapure and Ronit Roy in lead roles.
The Indian release of the film was delayed by Kashyap to voice his protest against the anti-smoking tickers on screen.
