Melbourne, a capital city of the state of Victoria will be light up with the Indian Film Festival. It is the 10th edition of the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne which will be held between 8th to 17th August.
We will see many Indian actors and superstars attending this event. Our King Khan will be honoring the festival as the chief guest of the annual celebration of Indian films.
The festival has grown year by year and it reached its 10th year and has gone from being a grassroots festival to a government supported one. An awardee of several global accolades, it has become the biggest Indian Film Festival in the Southern Hemisphere.
This year, the festival is set to celebrate the central theme of courage, which is engraved in the incivility and diversity of the Indian film business.
Shah Rukh will be opening the festival officially on the 8th of August, 2019 along with the other festival guests and in the company of the Premiere of Victoria and Mitu Bhowmick Lange, the director of the esteemed festival.
Shah Rukh Khan said,
“I’m honored and delighted to accept the invitation from the Victorian government and the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne to open their festival as their chief guest. The industry of our magnitude and diversity deserves to be celebrated with great passion and fervor, which is what the festival embodies. I’m particularly pleased with the theme of the festival this year which is courage, an emotion that resonates with storytellers who really have the might to change the society and the world. I have had great memories of shooting for Chak De India in Melbourne and look forward to being back again, this time to celebrate Indian cinema”.
Director of the festival, Mitu Bhowmick Lange said,
“We are so elated with the news of Mr. Khan joining us to be our chief guest. He’s truly an icon of Indian cinema internationally, a person millions and millions follow and look up to. The Indian Film Festival of Melbourne has always strived to bring the best Indian cinema here in Melbourne and bridge a gap between the fans and the actors whom people love and admire.
