Miyan Kal Aana, a short film by Shamas Siddiqui, the younger brother of acclaimed actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, has been selected for screening at the Cannes International Film Festival. It will be shown as part of the Short Film Catalog.
"I'm very happy that my first film got selected in the Cannes Court Meterrag Category. I would like to thank the film festival and every member who helped me put the film together and making it so special for me," said Shamas.
He had a keen desire to direct and he took on the dream last year as he set out to make Miyan Kal Aana, produced by Nawazuddin.
Nawazuddin will unfortunately not be able to make it for the event due to his shooting commitment with Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
Miyan Kal Aana, which is 17.5 minutes long, touches upon the Halala law in Islam.
