RANVIR Shorey, Gul Panag starrer Fatso will be screened at the 13th Shanghai International Film Festival to be held from June 12-20. The Pritish Nandy Communications (PNC) production also stars Purab Kohli, Neil Bhoopalam, Gunjan Bakshi and has been directed by well known director-actor Rajat Kapoor.
"Fatso is all about love packaged in with a calorie count. It's said that matches are made in heaven. This is one of those films where matches are undone in heaven," Pritish Nandy said.
Christiana Bian, Manager of Panorama and China, Americas and Oceania Affairs, Shanghai International Film Festival said, "Fatso has been selected officially for our Spectrum category. We have extended an invitation to PNC to attend the festival and participate in it."
Added Nandy, "It’s always been a challenge for us to get a romantic comedy into an international film festival as most of them prefer serious, issue-based cinema, particularly from a country like India. We are honoured to be at Shanghai for the first time.”
