Vidhu Vinod Chopra to be honoured by IFFLJun 2, 2010 IANS
New Delhi, June 2 (IANS) Vidhu Vinod Chopra, known for producing films like "Munnabhai M.B.B.S" and "3 Idiots", will be honoured by the Indian Film Festival of London (IFFL) June 25-29 for his contribution to cinema.
A retrospective of his films will also be organised at the festival, which will come to a closure with a charity screening of "3 Idiots" and proceeds of which will go to the United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef).
"'3 Idiots' is a special film. It's a film that has changed my own daughter's outlook towards education and she has taken up classical dancing full time. To have a charity screening for Unicef only echoes what the film is trying to say and we are really proud to be associated with such a noble cause," Chopra said in a press statement.
His films like "An Encounter With Faces" (1978), "Parinda" (1989), "1942: A Love Story" (1993), "Eklavya: The Royal Guard" (2007) will be screened at the festival.
The retrospective will be followed by a question and answer session.
The festival will be held at London's Riverside Studios. Click the Movie button below for more info:
