Cannes Screening

Speaking to The Lallantop, Nawazuddin said, “Now that you mention it… what happens, you can take your film (to the festival) even if it is officially selected. Here There are auditoriums that you can rent. Pay the owner. In the auditorium, lay out your red carpet, take your people, click photos there. Show your people the film. Come back and say, ‘Our film Cannes film Shown at the festival’,” Nawaz told Lallantop.

Nawazuddin further said, ‘I still do not understand why more than half the people go to the festival. When we were there people used to say ‘How and why are you here?’ We will tell them that our film is here. They would then ask us where, and we had no answer.

He also said that a film’s good reception at Cannes does not guarantee the film’s success, and cited the example of his own film Miss Lovely. The 2012 film was critically acclaimed at film festivals, but was forgettable at the box office when it released in India.

Nawazuddin told NDTV in a separate interview that it was a great experience to have the film officially selected at the film festival. He said that the Cannes Film Festival is the “Mecca of cinema” and not a fashion event.
