INDIAN INDEPENDENCE DRAMA TO SCREEN AT CASULA

Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre May Sydney Film Festival screening announced!

The true story of the final months of British rule in India will be told at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre (CPAC) when Viceroy’s House, a film by iconic British director Gurinder Chadha (Bend It Like Beckham) screens on Sunday 14 May at 11.00am, ahead of its national theatrical release (18 May).

Selected by Sydney Film Festival as part of the Festival’s monthly Casula screenings, the film follows British India’s transition to independence and stars Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey), Gillian Anderson (The X-Files, The Fall) and Michael Gambon (the Harry Potter franchise).

“Viceroy’s House is an epic tale of the end of British rule in India, the story of the last Viceroy, Mountbatten, and his family, and of the people caught up in the turmoil of the time. The film is also a deeply personal one for the director, whose own family was affected by the tragic events that unfolded during the Partition,” said Sydney Film Festival Director Nashen Moodley.

“Casula Powerhouse is looking forward to local audiences being among the first to see this historically significant film. To celebrate Mother’s Day, CPAC’s new Head Chef Federico Rekowski has planned a special menu at Bellbird. Guests can look forward to High Tea, with a glass of sparkling after the screening. Make sure to book as the screening is expected to be popular”, said CPAC Acting Director Craig Donarski.

“We’re very pleased that the partnership with Sydney Film Festival and CPAC continues to deliver high-quality cinema to the people of Liverpool. Not only are we delivering ground-breaking cinema to the local community, we are encouraging social cohesion and providing an opportunity for families and communities to come together over a common love of film,” said Liverpool Mayor Wendy Waller.

It appears, Akshay Kumar will be taking a break from the 'social cause' films like Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and be seen in Veeram's Hindi remake. The remake is reportedly going to be directed by Farhad Samji. Some reports have suggested the film will be called 'Land of Lungi'. Akshay Kumar is on a roll with some great projects in his kitty. The original Khiladi just gave a box office hit with Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, and now we hear that he will be seen in Veeram’s Hindi remake. From what we hear, Akshay Kumar will be taking a break from ‘social cause’ films. And after Padman and 2.0 with Rajinikanth, he will reportedly be seen in Veeram’s Hindi remake. The Hindi remake of Veeram with Akshay Kumar is reportedly going to be directed by Farhad Samji of the Sajid-Farhad duo. While some reports suggest that the film will be called ‘Land of Lungi’, there is no confirmation on the same. When we contacted director Farhad Samji, his wife confirmed this news and expressed excitement. She said,”Farhad is in talks with Akshay Kumar for this film, but he will be able to confirm once things materialise.” Reports also suggest that Sajid Nadiadwala will be producing this film. While Akshay Kumar has not yet confirmed this piece of news, it will be quite exciting to see the Toilet: Ek Prem Katha star donning a lungi for his character. Online Source: The Indian Express
