Another day and another good news for Bollywood fans. Abhishek Bachchan and Saiyami Kher starrer ‘Ghoomer’ will premiere at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) on the opening day of the film festival. ‘Ghoomer’ is directed by R Balki who is known for the films like Paa, Cheeni Kum, Chup: Revenge of the Artist, and many more.
Indian Film Festival of Melbourne is one of the biggest film festivals that happens outside the boundary of India. This year, IFFM is celebrating its 14th edition of the film festival which will be held from August 11 to August 20, 2023, in Melbourne, Australia.
Saiyami Kher shared a beautiful heartfelt gratitude with her fans.
Ghoomer falls under the Sports-drama genre which follows a story of a paraplegic sportsperson played by Saiyami Kher. She is tutored by Abhishek Bachchan’s character and is an excellent cricket player. The film was directed by R. Balki who is better known for his emotionally charged narratives which they showed earlier through his critically acclaimed films. The film also stars Angad Bedi and Shabana Azmi in the crucial roles respectively.
In the joint statement given by actor Abhishek Bachchan and director R. Balki, they said, “The fact that Ghoomer will open the IFFM is truly an honour and a joy for us. The story of Ghoomer shows how to use misfortune to your advantage. A tale of ingenuity in the face of extinction. Ghoomer pays homage to both the sport and the reservoir of human fortitude.”
Saiyami Kher was seen in movies like Mirzya, Unpaused, and 8 A.M. Metro.
They further said, “It’s only fitting for a film that believes that ‘Sport makes life worth living’ to be launched in the Sports capital of the world, Australia, land of the MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground). Welcome to the Ghoomer first peek.”
Last month, the actress of the film, Saiyami Kher also shared her gratitude for being in the film with her fans by sharing a beautiful portrait of her with Bachchan. She said, “Every project I work on seems unique, and some feel really unique.
I’ve wished to lead the life of a professional cricket player my entire life. The chance came my way thanks to “Ghoomer.” When you truly want something, the universe will work with you to make it happen, as the saying goes. I learned it from this project.”
Shabana Azmi will also be seen in ‘Rocky aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani’.
She further said, “Ghoomer was all about teamwork. On this project, I worked with some of the kindest folks I’ve ever encountered. I was able to participate in a hobby of mine thanks to this project. A production that gave me the opportunity to perform one of my physically and emotionally toughest roles to date. It feels too good to be true (with red heart emoji).
About the film premiere in IFFM, Kher said, “I’m overjoyed and feel incredibly humbled that “Ghoomer” will reopen IFFM. I hold this movie in the highest regard. Since I started acting, I’ve been able to fulfill a lifetime dream of mine by playing sports on the big screen. I’m so happy that it’s finally happening. For me, this movie transcends sports.”
