British Asian film ‘7 Welcome to London’ (2012) which released in March is currently set to wow the audiences and industry folk at the Cannes Film Festival which began today.
BizAsia caught up with filmmaker-actor Asad Shan while he was on his way to the airport. Shan was very excited about taking his film to Cannes. He revealed his thoughts, “When I was promoting my film, I got a lot of enquiries from various people. I was invited to have a screening at Cannes during that time.”
Shan went on to add how important the opportunity is for the British Asian industry, “I am excited about the chance of establishing a British Asian hold in potential territories where my film hasn’t reached yet. I will be hosting an Q and��A��event at Cannes and giving a talk about film-making from a British Asian perspective.”
BizAsia would like to wish Shan the very best for the festival which is sure to bring a whole new meaning to the Bollywood and British Asian film spectrums.
