The Shanghai International Film Festival is one of the most prestigious and recognised film festivals in the world.

The Shanghai International Film Festival will be held from June 11 to June 20 this year.

With the normalization of epidemic prevention and control, SIFF will implement key instructions on promoting epidemic prevention and control from Shanghai and the state, and perform relevant requirements.

The film has been produced by Noorul Sultan under the Maina Productions banner.

The movie is inspired by the real-life story of poverty-stricken Dana Majhi from Odisha, who was forced to carry the body of his wife on his shoulders for nearly ten kilometres because the government did not care.

The film stars Harish Khanna, Pranami Bora, Porinandhi Jima Sultana in leads and is expecting a theatrical release in October later this year.
