"I could have been abducted while I was studying at Delhi. That's one reason why I'm here to promote this film," said filmmaker Imtiaz Ali, who was at PVR cinemas to promote Sushil Rajpal's Antardwand, a movie based on groom abductions in Bihar and Eastern Uttar Pradesh.
The film has won a National Award for showcasing social issues that plague rural India and will be hitting the silver screen on August 27. Starring Raj Singh Chaudhary (who shot to fame post Gulaal), Vinay Pathak, Swati Sen (an FTII graduate) and Akhilendra Mishra, the film has been made on a budget of Rs 1.5 crore.
To promote the movie, Imtiaz was dressed as a groom, while addressing the media. "I saw this film before it got the National Award and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is quite entertaining as it talks about a topic that is so relevant. I can quite relate to this topic because I come from Jamshedpur and close to the area, this practice is quite rampant. So I was happy that now there is a movie that highlights the issue," Imtiaz told the media.
