By IndiaFM

It looks like Shemaroo Entertainment is on a roll, especially for two reasons. Their forthcoming film Staying Alive, which is being directed by Ananth Mahadevan, is being screened at the 12th International Film Festival of Kerala [IFFK]. Added to that is their last released film Manorama Six Feet Under, which was directed by Navdeep Singh is also being screened at the same festival.

Staying Alive, which stars Saurabh Shukla and Ananth Mahadevan himself, is based on a true story of a journalist and an underworld kingpin. The film (which is based on a true story) is about being grateful at the joy of just staying alive. Staying Alive has been earlier screened at ‘Bite the Mango Festival’ at Bradford UK. Speaking about the film, director Ananth Mahadevan said that its a tribute to great cinema makers, who have inspired him to make a movie of this kind.
As for Manorama Six Feet Under, its producer Ketan Maru said that since his film won the Best Film Award at 'The Mahindra Indo-American Arts Council Film Festival' [MIAAC] at New York, there has been a lot of curiosity among audiences to watch this film.

The 12th IFFK 2007 is currently being held from December 7-14, 2007; showcasing the films of famous directors from across the globe and films of many other directors too are being screened in various sections. The jury includes ten distinguished members across the world from the film fraternity who have a tough choice to make, in order to give away the festivals six awards and one audience prize.
