Sunil Subramani's ‘Fuddu’ slated for release later this year

NEW DELHI: The Hindi film Fuddu, which became controversial late last year for its title but received accolades from foreign delegates at the Film Bazaar of the International Film Festival of India (IFFI), is expected to release later this year.
