Roam Rome Mein all set to premiere at the Busan International Film Festival
Tanishtha Chatterjee’s directorial debut film, ‘Roam Rome Mein’ starring multifaceted actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui had its world premiere on Thursday at the prestigious Busan International Film Festival Festival.
Director Tanishtha Chatterjee spoke about the film during an interview with a leading daily. She said, “It’s a feminist film with a male protagonist. I have been toying with the idea for a while. I wanted to go deep into the protagonist’s patriarchal psyche by putting him in a situation that is life changing. I thought let me traumatise a patriarch and shift something in him. When we were shooting for Lion, Nawaz and I mutually expressed the thought of exploring avenues of working on a project together pertaining to a genre that the two us would enjoy watching as audience. That’s how Roam Rome Mein started ideating in my mind. Then Ravi Walia came on board as a producer and Ridhima Lulla from Eros loved the concept. And we made the film. Today we all are thrilled that we are having a world premiere in Busan.”
Nawazuddin Siddiqui further added, “It is definitely a happy moment for us that our film’s World Premiere is to be held at the prestigious Busan International Film Festival. It was an absolute pleasure working on this film and shooting in the charming city of Rome.”
Roam Rome Mein, a psychological drama, features Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead. The film also stars Tanishtha Chatterjee Valentina Corti, Isha Talwar, Francesco Apolloni, UrBano Barberini, Pamela Villoresi and Andrea Scarduzio in pivotal roles.
