After turning out to be a breakout film at Cannes Film festival, 'The Lunch Box' is up for a major release in India.
The film will be presented to desi audiences by Karan Johar and UTV, in association with Dar Motion Pictures and the National Film Development Corporation (NFDC).
Talking about its release, Karan remarked, "I am excited about presenting the film in India. Not just the performances, even the storytelling is exceptional." Produced by Anurag Kashyap, Guneet Monga and Arun Rangachari, 'The Lunch Box' stars Irrfan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Nimrit Kaur in pivotal roles. Its international distributor is Sony, which had earlier distributed 'Lagaan'.
Added Karan, "I absolutely loved the film. Irrfan and Nawazuddin are brilliant, while Nimrit is waiting to exhale. I haven't enjoyed a love story like this in a long time. It's beautifully written and stunningly directed by Ritesh Batra."
