A special screening of Irrfan Khan
starrer Paan Singh Tomar will be held for Union Information
& Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni tomorrow in New Delhi.
The viewing has been organised at the Mahadev Auditorium
for Soni, who will be accompanied by director Tigmanshu Dhulia
as well as the lead actor.
Paan Singh Tomar is based on the real life of a
sportsman-turned-dacoit from Chambal. Tomar, a national
steeplechase champion for seven years, quit the sport and joins the
army to become a 'Bandit King' of the Chambal Valley.
Produced by UTV Motion Pictures Paan Singh Tomar,
starring Mahie Gill alongwith Irrfan, released on March 2 and
has emerged a sleeper hit.
"We are very heartened with the Box Office and critical
acclaim the film has got and we think it is an Oscar
contender, no less. We are very proud of the recognition that
the Ministry and Ambikaji has given to our work and
commitment," Ronnie Screwvala, UTV CEO and Managing Director,
Walt Disney Company India, said in a statement here.
