Miya Kal Aana, a short film by Shamas Siddiqui, the younger brother of acclaimed actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, will be screened at the Cannes International Film Festival as part of the 'Short Film Catalog'.
"I'm very happy that my first film got selected in the Cannes Court Metrage Category. I would like to thank the film festival and every member who helped me put the film together and making it so special for me," said Shamas.
The director said he had a keen desire to direct and pursued his dream last year by making the Nawazuddin Siddiqui-produced film.
Nawazuddin will not be able to accompany his brother to Cannes due to his shooting commitments for Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
The 17.5-minute film, deals with Islam's Halala Law.
