Chennai, Dec 24 IANS | 2 years ago

Telugu romantic-drama "Anthaku Mundhu Aa Tharavatha", which was lauded by critics and audiences alike, is now travelling to foreign soil to be screened at the upcoming 2nd Indian International Film Festival of South Africa (IIFFSA).

IIFFSA, a multi-city event, is scheduled to be held in Pretoria, Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg Jan 16-23, 2014.

For "Anthaku Mundhu Aa Tharavatha" director Indraganti Mohan Krishna, "it's an honour to see our film being screened at international film festivals".

"We hope it impresses foreign audiences as well as much it impressed people in India. I can see that gradually an increasing number of Indian films are travelling to these film fests and that's a good sign," Krishna told IANS.

A modern-day romantic tale sans vulgarity, the film features Sumanth Ashwin and Eesha in lead roles, while Rohini, Ram Ramesh, Ravi Babu and Madhoo essay important roles.

The film fest is supported by Filmcity, Mumbai, Whistling Woods International Institute, the National Film and Video Foundation, Indian High Commission and Government of India.
