New Delhi : 'Ventilator', the upcoming Marathi film by actress Priyanka Chopra's film production venture, is set to premiere at the upcoming Jio Mumbai Academy of Moving Image (MAMI) Film Festival.
Now in its 18th edition, the fest will celebrate Marathi cinema with the launch of its new segment Marathi Talkies.
The movie line-up, which includes films like 'Vakratunda Mahakaya', 'Bioscope' and 'Rajwade and Sons', has been curated by Marathi film critic Amol Parchure.
Ventilator is written and directed by 'Ferrari ki Sawaari' fame director Rajesh Mapuskar.
Expressing happiness over his film's premiere at MAMI, Mapuskar said, ''I am glad that MAMI has provided this new platform for Marathi cinema and they are hosting the world premiere of Ventilator.
'' Ventilator revolves around an ailing senior member of a family, who is being put on the ventilator just days before the Ganapati festival, leading to varied degrees of speculation and panic amongst the large clan he belongs to.
''We have seen some unconventional and splendid films take over the world cinema stage and win hearts across countries, breaking the language barrier.
Film festivals like MAMI have also proven beneficial to the industry as they provide a platform for progressive Marathi cinema to showcase itself,'' Mr Parchure said.
