'5 Weddings', an Indo-American film featuring Rajkummar Rao and Nargis Fakhri, will have a world premiere at the 71st Cannes Film Festival.
The director, Namrata Singh Gujral, is thrilled at the prospect of her film getting such a big platform.
The film also features Hollywood actresses Anneliese Van der Pol, Bo Derek and Candy Clark.
Here's what Namrata has to say about the film
"The film is a colorful mosaic of lost loves, transgender tangles and culture clashes along the heartfelt journey of life, symbolized by the universal ups and downs of a wedding celebration," Namrata said.
Harbhajan Mann was the original choice
Namrata had originally planned '5 Weddings' with Punjabi star Harbhajan Mann, back in 2008.
However, she had to put the film on hold after she was diagnosed with cancer.
The US-based director revived it after 10 long years with Rajkummar and Nargis in the lead.
It is expected to release in India in the second half of 2018.
