We loved the trailer of Filmistaan when we saw it for the first time a little while ago, and it looks like we weren’t the only ones – Amitabh Bachchan recently tweeted a link to the trailer, praising it for its “fresh talent” and “innovative ideas” – and if you check out the trailer, you’ll agree that it’s definitely something different than what we’ve seen in the past. Filmistaan has already won several film festival awards, and also bagged the National Award for Best Feature Film (Hindi) in 2012. It’s all set for release on June 6th, so have a look at the trailer and let us know what you think!
Sharib Hashmi, the film’s lead actor, says:
“I think I am Amitabh sir’s biggest fan. I have watched Coolie 72 times. I was thrilled and almost choked with happiness when I saw Amitabh sir’s tweet. Can’t express in words how thankful I am to him for tweeting the trailer.”
Nitin Kakkar, the film’s director, says:
“Our film is really an ode to Hindi cinema and what could be more befitting than getting an endorsement from the living legend himself? It is a huge support and it has recharged all of us, as we gear up for the release very soon. Deep gratitude, Amit sir.”
Psst! Have you seen the aarti that has been done for Katrina Kaif?
