Miss Lovely is India's entry at Cannes


By Hindustan Times

An Indian movie has made it to the 65th Cannes Film Festival. Ashim Ahluwalia’s Miss Lovely will be part of the A Certain Regard, with about 20 entries.

The last Indian work to screen at Cannes was Vikramaditya Motwane’s Udaan in the 2010 A Certain Regard.

Set in the Mumbai of the mid-1980s, Miss Lovely is a story of sleaze and suspicion.

Two brothers, Vicky and Sonu, make C-grade movies, and fall in love with the same woman.

Miss Lovely stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Niharika Singh and Anil George.
