'Eega' to feature at Shanghai film festival

Chennai, May 15 : After Cannes, S.S Rajamouli's highly successful Telugu revenge-drama "Eega" has been selected to feature in the panorama section of upcoming 16th Shanghai International Film Festival.

The festival will start June 15 and end on June 23.

Confirming the same, film's director S.S. Rajamouli posted on his Twitter page: "We got the official confirmation this morning. "Eega" has been selected in the panorama section of Shanghai International Film Festival".
