“With the backing of their Government and Streamcast Studios (Nimish Pandya), we may have an Indo-Maltese fusion cast ensemble romantic movie in future, with me being part of it; that too shot at the exotic locales of Malta,” enthused graceful Bollywood actress Vidya Balan, who is the brand ambassador and a Jury member of the  first ever 'Malta-India Film Festival' (MIFF), to be held in their capital city Valletta in mid-December.

Justifies Vidya, “Films are a vital catalyst for cultural exchanges and this vibrant film-fest is a creative bridge for bringing diverse peoples closer and opening unique opportunities. Frankly, I am proud to be the MIFF film-fest-face,” gushed Balan, who was sharing the stage with non-filmy dignitaries like Maltese Tourism Minister Konrad Mizzi, and MLA - State Minister Deepak Kesarkar, besides Nimish Pandya and Engelbert Grech. Incidentally, the 'Tumhari Sulu' actress is also being backed by Jury member and eminent movie director Vijay Krishna Acharya who has shot major portions of his period blockbuster 'Thugs of Hindostan' starring Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan, in and around Malta  in hi-tech indoor studios as well as  breath-taking under-water scenes. To add panache to the closing awards ceremony, Streamcast has hired fabulous Bollywood choreographer Shiamak Davar. “ For the first time I am also the main director of that entire finale event and I will definitely ensure that the performances would be new, different yet spectacular thanks to my insane passion,” shrugged ‘dance-guru’ Shiamak.
