Earlier we had reported that Ajay Devgn‘s debut international production Parched will be premiering at the Toronto Film Festival in September this year. Now, we hear that the actor who rarely attends public events or award shows, will be walking the red carpet of TIFF.
Being the producer of the film, Ajay Devgn is glad about the acclaim that Parchedhas been receiving and said, “It’s gonna be the first time for me because usually I stay away from the glitz and madness of any film awards and events. I’m excited to attend TIFF because it celebrates world cinema where best of the world’s talent meet, greet and appreciate each other. We always had the belief in Leena’s vision as a writer & director. It’s very heartwarming for me to see my support finally getting the appreciation it deserves.”
Talking about the film that revolves around four female protagonists, Ajay added, “Parched is about the small battles that women must fight to win the big war. Films like Parched need to be made, seen, and discussed. Then maybe along the way we can correct some of the many wrongs that women have suffered since eternity.”
Produced by Ajay Devgn under his USA based venture Shivalaya Entertainment, in association with Blue Waters Motion Picture, Airan Consultants, Parched is written by Leena Yadav – Supratik Sen and directed by Leena Yadav with talented ensemble cast of Tannishtha Chatterjee, Radhika Apte, Surveen Chawla, Adil Hussain, Lehar Khan, Riddhi Sen, Mahesh Balraj and Chandan Anand.
