At a special screening of the Punjabi film Chauthi Koot, Sonam was asked if she would do a Punjabi film, and said, "I don't know the language; I do understand it. I understand Sindhi and Hindi more, but why not? I don't think, as an actor, a language should curb your enthusiasm"
Two Indian films, Chauthi Koot and Masaan, have been chosen for the 'Un Certain Regard' category at Cannes
This year, a clutch of Indian films will be screened at Cannes - Miyan Kal Aana, produced by Nawazuddin Siddiqui and directed by his brother Shamas; Neeraj Ghaywan's Masaan and Gurvnder Singh's Chauthi Koot will compete in Un Certain Regard
The line-up of films was announced today by festival director Thierry Fremaux who also said that the eye on India would focus on 'new gen' films rather than offerings from Bollywood or Bengali cinema
