Ranbir Kapoor starrer Sanju gets screened at Shanghai International Film Festival
Rajkumar Hirani was the jury member of the Shanghai International Film Festival
Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju was screened at the Shanghai International Film Festival where Hirani was also the jury member, amongst the prominent names from across the globe. Sanju, starring Ranbir Kapoor is based on the life of Sanjay Dutt. It was not only a favourite of the masses but also was one of the highest grossers at the box office in India.
Mr. Hirani graced the opening ceremony of the Shanghai International Film Festival. Hirani is definitely one name who has taken India on the global map for cinema and has created a mark with his artistry. Receiving accolades for his recent movie Sanju, the screening at an International podium like Shanghai is a massive achievement.
The filmmaker has given the industry some of the classic movies like 3 Idiots, and Munna Bhai series. He will be on the jury panel alongside Italian director Paolo Genovese and Chinese actress Zhao. They join the previously announced jury president, 2014 Cannes Palme d’Or winner Nuri Bilge Ceylan, the Turkish director behind last year’s “The Wild Pear Tree.”
Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF) is the only competitive film festival in China approved by the International Federation of Film Producers Associations. Shanghai International Film Festival looks at promoting the country’s rising film making talent and has become a ground where India is leading the list of jury panelists with Rajkumar as the front runner.
Consecutive with his presence at coveted panels, Rajkumar Hirani was also recently announced as a Jury President for the Malaysia International Film Festival.
