Rohena Gera's Sir to be released in France and Germany

Sir, starring Tillotama Shome, has been sold for theatrical release in over 20 countries. But the India release is still uncertain.


Director Rohena Gera's Sir will be releasing later this month in France and Germany.

The film, starring Tillotama Shome, Vivek Gomber and Geetanjali Kulkarni, will be released on about 100 screens in France on 26 December and another 100 in Germany on 20 December.

Sir, which has won five audience awards at film festivals in France, the US, the Netherlands and Germany, has been sold for theatrical release in over 20 countries.

"This week, I travel to eight cities in Germany in four days, then it's Florence to open the River To River Festival," Gera said in a statement.

"We will have covered 12 cities in France before the release. But also to the US, Switzerland, Italy... it is quite literally a crazy journey. But also a dream come true. Now all I want is to have the film seen widely in India," added the director.

Didier Lacourt, director of distribution of Diaphana, said: "After the excellent reception in Cannes and at various festivals where the film won each time the audience award, we wanted an ambitious release for Sir, Rohena Gera's first film.

"Prestigious Media will support the film with advertising inserts, Les Inrocks, Telerama, France Culture, Mademoizelle ... as well as many associations close to India and the status of women.

"After Devdas which we released in 2002, it is for Diaphana the second major release of an Indian film to which we want to give as much visibility as possible so that the film meets the widest audience possible."
