Santosh Sivan's Navarasa, which takes a look at a community of eunuchs in Kerala, and Rajit Kapoor's quirky comedy Mixed Doubles are the two Indian entries at the Rotterdam Film Festival.
There will also be a special screening of K Asif's digitally coloured Mughal-E-Azam at the Jan 25-Feb 5 35th International Film Festival Rotterdam, in the Netherlands.
Sunil Doshi, producer of both the Indian entries, cannot believe this.
"I still have to accept the fact that two films in which I have a hand are in a prestigious festival like Rotterdam. More than myself, I am happy and proud for my two directors. It is good to see two of the brightest young talents of Indian cinema - Santosh Sivan and Rajit Kapoor - being recognised at such a distinguished venue."
Sunil is a self confessed "festival junkie" who tries to attend all the major European festivals every year.
"So far I have always been a part of our delegations and the audience. This is the first time I will be an active part of a festival, and that too one which I am very gung-ho about."
Santosh and Rajit will accompany Sunil to Rotterdam this month.
