The story revolves around a cop who shoots a child and gets fired from the force. He then starts a business of pirated films. The name of the protagonist is Michael. The release date of thefilm will be decided after the film festival.” He adds, “Last year, we went to Cannes, Venice and Toronto with Udaan and That Girl In The Yellow Boots. This year we will visit Toronto with Trishna (which stars Freida Pinto) and Michael. Obviously it’s an honour. It makes us feel like we must be doing something right.” Pankaj Kapoor’s Mausam will also be screened at the Film Festival.
