MUMBAI: Director Tanuja Chandra’s English film Hope And A Little Sugar will be premiered at the South Asian International Festival in New York on 6 October, 2006.
“I am very happy and proud that my English movie Hope And A Little Sugar, which was shot over a year ago in New York, is going to be premiered at the South Asian International Festival,” says Chandra.
“The film is a sensitive and dramatic love story between a Muslim boy played by Amit Sial and a Sikh girl portrayed by Mahima Chaudhry, which takes place during the backdrop of September 11 attack on the World Trade Center in New York. It revolves around how the incident affected the lives of ordinary people who had nothing to do with it. The movie is very close to my heart,” she adds.
Hope And A Little Sugar has been produced by Glenn Russow and Scott Pardo. “This film will be first released in the overseas market and then in India. The producers are already in discussions with Indian distributors regarding the movie,” informs Chandra.
The movie, which was shot in 25 days, also stars Anupam Kher, Suhasini Mulay and Vikram Chatwal. Chandra, who has applied for a fresh US visa, is keeping her fingers crossed to attend the film’s premiere on 6 October.
