Sanaa, starring Radhika Madan, will kick off the UK Asian Film Festival
On Sunday, it was announced that the UK Asian Film Festival would kick off with the introspective drama ‘Sanaa,’ directed by Sudhanshu Saria and starring Radhika Madan. In ‘Sanaa,’ Madan plays a strong and driven lady fighting an inner war caused by unresolved trauma.
Both Saria and Madan will be in attendance at the May 4 screening of “Sanaa” at the BFI Southbank in London. To honor its silver anniversary, the festival will screen an impressive selection of films that focus on the lives of Asian Britons.
Saria has stated that it is a great privilege for their picture to open the 25th annual UK Asian picture Festival.
We’re honored to be a part of an event that has been honoring different points of view and fostering new perspectives for 25 years. “I can’t wait to hear from British audiences how “Sanaa,” an intimate and raw portrait of the modern Indian woman, is received,” the director remarked.
Madan’s favorite movie is “Sanaa,” she stated.
A lot of individuals experience trauma, but they don’t like to talk about it, and this short is about that. It was a great relief to know that people all over the world enjoyed my challenging performance. The actor continued, “I am very much looking forward to presenting the film and sharing ‘Sanaa’ with the audience at the UK Asian Film Festival.
After premiering at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival in North America, ‘Sanaa’ went on to screen at the 26th Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival. Starring alongside Pooja Bhatt and Shikha Talsania is also Soham Shah.
Tongues on Fire, a non-profit, is responsible for putting on the UK Asian Film Festival, which receives funding from the BFI and Arts Council England. With the slogan “Celebrating Our Stories,” this year’s festival will highlight films that explore the lives of Asian Britons in the United Kingdom. On May 13th, it will be over.
