Geeta Malik directed ‘India Sweet and Spices’, based on her script ‘Dinner With Friends’, has had its rights acquired by CAA Media Finance. The film stars Manisha Koirala and Adil Hussain.

“We don’t often see movies about the duality of identifying strongly with both Indian and American traditions, and not having to choose between them. And I didn’t want to make a movie specifically about any sort of culture clash. Every generation, no matter what their background, has to find a way to both break free from and embrace their history. That’s what this film is about and it is set in the world I know best,” said Malik, according to Variety.

The film is based on the story of a woman who finds out some family secrets after returning home to New Jersey after a year at college.
