Mumbai: Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi will present his film Beyond the Clouds on the opening day of this year's International Film Festival of India, to be held from November 20-28 in Goa.
Starring Ishaan Khatter and Malavika Mohanan in the lead roles, 'Beyond The Clouds' is centred around a brother-sister relationship.
"This is my second time at the IFFI, Goa. The first time it was a retrospective of my earlier films and this time, it's for 'Beyond The Clouds'. I am very happy and curious to see the reactions of the audiences because this is the first time the film will be presented to Indian audiences," Majidi said in a statement.
Academy Award nominee, the filmmaker is coming to India for the first time and makes a film out of his country, an experience which he describes as “one waiting for years to happen”.
Majidi, along with the lead actors, Oscar winning music director A.R. Rahman and Hindi dialogue writer of the film Vishal Bhardwaj is expected to attend the premiere on November 20.
