UTV Motion Pictures’ forthcoming release, Kai Po Che, is scheduled to have its World Premiere at the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival. The film, based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel, The 3 Mistakes of My Life, will be screened at the film festival on 13th February 2013.
Kai Po Che, which stars newcomers Sushant Singh Rajput, Raj Kumar Yadav and Amit Sadh in lekaiad roles, portrays the journey of three friends as they discover cricket, religion and business in their respective fields.
Said Disney UTV Managing Director – Studios, Siddharth Roy Kapur, “We are incredibly proud that Kai Po Che has been selected for a world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival. What is even more creditable is that it is the only Indian film in the official panorama selection announced by the festival this year. For a film dependent entirely on its strong story line rather than its lineup of stars, this is a huge achievement and for that I would like to commend Abhishek Kapoor and his entire cast and crew for bringing all their talent and passion to bear, to make Kai Po Che a film for the ages.”
Set against the backdrop of religious politics, the story of Kai Po Che underlines the three mistakes made by Govind. The film as well as the book is set in Gujarat and hence the title Kai Po Che.
Thirty-one fictional features from 23 countries will provide insights into contemporary world cinema production at the 10-day-long Berlin Film festival.
UTV Motion Pictures’ Kai Po Che releases in the UK and Worldwide on 22nd February 2013.
