Now this comes as a shocker to many, who expect prestigious film festivals like the one in Toronto to disregard Bollywood’s masala films. Well, we can forget about that rule because Singh is Kinng has been invited to attend the Toronto International Film Festival as a gala presentation. The festival runs from September 3-14 and witnesses the screening of some of the most acclaimed films around the world.
The screening will be attended by director Anees Bazmi, producer Vipual Shah and of course lead actors Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif. It should also be noted that TIFF has has gala presentations for films like Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna and The Last Lear in the past as well.
Singh Is Kinng has set new records at the worldwide box-office, raking in approximately $25 million to date and still going strong.
In addition to this film, Irrfan Khan will also be at the Toronto Film Festival for his film New York, I Love You. He features in the short film titled ‘Kosher-Vegetarian’ which was directed by Mira Nair and co-stars Natalie Portman.
