The director will present her film to her Australian audience, and will also be having an elaborate in conversation about Indian cinema with them. People from all across Australia are expected to be present for her special conversation, which is slated to take place on August 10.
Zoya says, “It’s always great to see Indian cinema travelling and transcending across borders. As a filmmaker, it’s a very rewarding experience and more than that, it’s extremely thrilling to see a celebration of Indian films. I’m ecstatic to be invited and to be a part of IFFM 2019 in Melbourne, which is a melting pot of cultures. There’s a huge Indian community in Australia and I’m looking forward to take Gully Boy there for a special screening and extending a discussion on cinema with Australian audiences”.
