Another desi film "Indian Cowboy" is to hit theatres in the US later this month, close on the heels of two such successful earlier releases - "American Desi" and "American Chai".

The film, a romantic comedy with a South Asian twist that explores the idea of true love, is directed by young Indian American filmmaker Nikhil Kamkolkar.

"In today's contemporary society many young couples around the world are struggling with the same issues and possibilities created by the jet set. They will relate to the theme and content of the movie," Kamkolkar said.

"Indian Cowboy" features rising stars of the South Asian diaspora, including Sheetal Sheth and Deep Katdare, according to a press release.

"I really want to see this film play in India as well," the filmmaker said.

Born and raised in India, Kamkolkar came to the US to study at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. After graduating, he worked for Microsoft. But throughout he continued to nurture his interest in acting. He studied all aspects of film production including special effects at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute, New York Film Academy, Silicon Studio and Hollywood Panavision.
