Sharing his excitement, director, Jayant Rohatgi, said, “After a heart-warming response at Tokyo and Palm Springs, I am excited to be a part of another prestigious film festival in NYIFF. It’s a privilege to be amidst such powerful films and filmmakers celebrating the best of Indian cinema. Hetal’s journey is simply remarkable. Her tenacity in breaking through gender stereotypes, social prejudices, lack of opportunities and her own demons to make a seemingly impossible dream come true moved me immensely. I hope our film resonates with and inspires the audience in New York as well.”

Shot in Kolkata, Mumbai and Japan, Sumo Didi is a story of grit and rising from the depths of despair. The story revolves around a middle-class girl from a conservative Marwari family who defies all odds to turn her perceived weakness into her strength and breaks the glass ceiling.

The film has garnered acclaim at premier international film festivals. Sumo Didi’s enthralling narrative captivated audiences at the renowned Tokyo International Film Festival and also at 35th Palm Springs International Film Festival.
