National Award winning filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar‘s short film Mumbai Mist, has been selected for its world premiere at the Busan International Film Festival. According to source, the film will premiere on 14th October .
The story of the film themed on “where has the time gone” shows a bond shared between an old man and an orphan rag-picker, played by Annu Kapoor and child actor Master Devrath.
Since Bhandarkar has a soft corner for Bollywood classics, he used the song “Awaara hoon” from Raj Kapoor’s film, which worked like cream on the cake.
Mumbai Mist was part of The Magnificent Five – Directors Collaboration Project for the BRICS Film Festival.
Bhandarkar represented India, alongside globally-feted storytellers like Brazilian Walter Salles (The Motorcycle Diaries fame), Chinese director-screenwriter Jia Zhangke, Russian storyteller Aleksey Fedorchenko and South African filmmaker Jahmil XT Qubeka.
