Filmmaker Onir’s film Shab, starring Raveena Tandon in the lead, was premiered at the New York Indian Film Festival last week, and he says that he couldn’t have asked for a better reaction from the audience. “I am thrilled with the response the film has received. NYIFF is special as this is the fourth time my film has got screened at the festival,” shares Onir, whose film is set against the backdrop of a cosmopolitan city and shows how lives of different people are intermingled.


Back home in India, the first look of the film was released on Tuesday, and the director says that he’s is quite happy with the reactions he’s seen on social media. “I hope the film gets as much love when it releases in India. Everyone has put in a lot of efforts to bring out the emotions of the characters on the big screen.”

The film which will release on June 30, also stars Ashish Bisht, Arpita Chatterjee and French actor Simon Frenay.

This is not the first time that the filmmaker’s work has won hearts on an international platform. His documentary Raising The Bar won the Award of Recognition at the Australian Film Festival in December.
