Miss Lovely
MUMBAI: At the 65th Cannes Film Festival this year, Indian filmmaker Ashim Ahluwalia’s movie "Miss Lovely" will represent India in the non-competitive section. Ahluwalia’s movie will be showcased alongside 16 other movies from different countries in the ‘Un Certain Regard’ section of the Cannes film fest.

"Miss Lovely" is set in the lower depths of Mumbai’s ‘C’ grade film industry and follows the story of two brothers, who are producers of sleazy horror films in the mid-1980s.

No Indian film has made it to the competition section of the extravaganza, where there are a total of 22 movies including "Moonrise Kingdom", "Cosmopolis", "The Paperboy" and "Reality" from across the globe.

The festival, to be held May 16-27, will be visited by Bollywood actresses Aishwarya Rai, Mallika Sherawat, Sonam Kapoor and Bipasha Basu.
