Featuring National Award winning actor Rajkummar Rao in the lead, Citylights will hit the theatres May 30
Filmmaker Kiran Rao, who released Anand Gandhi's highly acclaimed Ship of Theseus in association with UTV Motion Pictures, is overwhelmed with the film's National Award win.
National Award winning director Hansal Mehta has readied his next film titled Citylights and he unveiled a 26-minute footage of the movie at an event here attended by Mahesh Bhatt, who is backing the film, and the cast.
Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, who is backing Citylights, a remake of Metro Manila, says the movie directed by Hansal Mehta should not be described as festival movie because it has all the elements of a commercial cinema.
Other winners include Hindi film Jolly LLB, actor Rajkummar Rao and director Hansal Mehta for Shahid
The critically acclaimed Shahid scored two big wins at the National Film Awards - Best Director for Hansal Mehta and Best Actor for Rajkummar Rao.
Hansal Mehta is upset with the Central Board of Film Certification's criterion for awarding certificates to movies and has filed an RTI application, asking why Ram-Leela was given U/A certificate and his Shahid an A.
Actor Rajkummar Rao, who has been a part of intense films like Ragini MMS and Shahid, is excited about the comedy movie Tantrik, which will be helmed by director Pavan Kriplani.
Rajkumar Yadav, who played the title role in Hansal Mehta-directed biopic Shahid, may team up with the filmmaker again for City Lights.
