The filmmaker whose 'Sanju' has earned good box office collections, will screen the movie for students from La Trobe University in Australia as part of the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) next month. Rajkumar Hirani will introduce the film, talk about Sanjay Dutt and show the children the biopic.
“It’s always an enriching experience when people of different diaspora watch our films. I look forward to the special screening of Sanju for the students at La Trobe. It would be an interesting experience to see the reactions of those who are almost alien to Hindi films and the life of Sanjay Dutt,” he said in a statement.
He will also champion the cause of inclusion — the theme of IFFM this year. The festival will take place from August 10-22. On the theme, he said, “I’m looking forward to the festival this year, especially since it is championing the theme of inclusion in cinema. I look forward to being in Melbourne.”
Sanju, which starred Ranbir Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Manisha Koirala, Paresh Rawal and Sonam Kapoor, has gone to earn almost Ra 200 crores since its release 12 days back.
It’s not just mainstream Bollywood films, several regional films will also be screened at the festival. Critically acclaimed Marathi films, Cycle, directed by Prakash Kunte and Nude, directed by Ravi Jadhav have also been selected.
