Writer-producer Harry Sachdeva‘s upcoming film 31st October starring Soha Ali Khan and Vir Das, received a standing ovation at the London Indian Film Festival, where it was screened recently.
The Vir Das-Soha Ali Khan starrer 31st October is based on a true life story of a Sikh family stuck in Delhi during the anti-Sikh riots on 31st October following the assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
After the overwhelming response the film received in London, Vir commented, ”The experience was great. During my interactions with the people at the festival, I informed them that I am not normally a person you will see at film festivals because of the kind of films I do but 31st October being my first drama needs to be showcased at a platform like London Indian Film Festival. The movie is a simple story of a family set at the backdrop of a big day in history. It’s a simple story about how you try to save your family and do everything required to save them.”
Produced by Magical Dreams Productions Pvt Ltd and Harry Sachdeva and directed by Shivaji Lotan Patil, 31st October stars Soha Ali Khan and Vir Das in the lead roles along with Dayashankar Pandey, Vineet Sharma, Deep Raj Rana, Raj Saluja, Nagesh Bhosle and Sezal Sharma.
