Director Sridhar Rangayan’s ‘Evening Shadows’ has found an admirer in Shabana Azmi after premiering at the Lonavala International Film Festival.
According to Rangayan, Azmi is helping with a wider release of the film, “Shabana has said that she will talk to some distributors she knows. She feels that the film should be seen by a larger audience. She’s a busy person, and she’s going out of her way to help us, and that really means a lot,”, The Asian Age reported.
‘Evening Shadows’ is a story about the relationship between a mother and her son from a small town in South India, after the son confesses he is gay. The film, which has won awards at three international festivals, is not based on Rangayan’s life, but is partly inspired by it, “I am a Tamilian myself, I come from a similar background, and I have had such conversations with my mother. Though it’s not autobiographical, the film has bits of me and my mother.” The cast includes Mona Ambegaonkar, Ananth Mahadevan, Devansh Doshi and Arpit Chaudhary.
