After winning accolades at the Busan International Film Festival last year, director Mozez Singh’s directorial debut Zubaan had its North American premiere at Palm Springs International Film Festival (PSIFF) in California on January 3.
Starring Masaan fame actor Vicky Kaushal and Sarah Jane-Dias, the film garnered a good response.
In fact, Zubaan managed to impress Hollywood bigwigs like Will Smith, Johnny Depp, Matt Damon and Cate Blanchett.
Talking about the film festival, Mozez says, "It was a huge honour to have this film screened at the Palm Springs International Film Festival especially since it has been associated with the Oscars.
"It was amazing to meet Will Smith and show him the promo. He loved it and wished us luck, a great beginning to what has been an amazing journey this far," he adds.
Zubaan, which has been making waves at international films festivals, is a coming-of-age story of a young man who has a fear of music. It is set between Punjab and Delhi.
