Purab Kohli attends the Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) for the film ‘Jal’, in which he plays the lead. The film which stars Kirti Kulhari and is directed by Girish Malik is already gaining momentum among the critics. Known for portraying diverse characters in films, Purab will be seen as/in a character that he has never played before. ‘Jal’ will have its world premiere at the BIFF, which is held from 3rd October -12th October 2013 and is among the 12 other entries that will feature in the festival’s ‘New Currents’ segment.
Talking about his experience and his expectation with regards to the film at the BIFF, Purab says, “’Energetic’ Busan, that’s the first thing I read when I landed into Busan and the energy is at its high with the on-goings of BIFF. The whole city, where ever you look from Buildings to cars, Streets into the restaurant and clubs, to the people, all painted in the colours of the festival.
This is the first time I’ve travelled to a film festival of this size and stature and having a film that I’m a part of competing in it, is making this experience one of the most memorable of my life. Also, there is the exposure of meeting people from around the world who are all in the same business as you.
I hear Busan Predicts the future of Asian Cinema that alone is such an exciting feeling for our whole team who are here in strength, and now as we near the end of the festival one can only keep fingers crossed and hope that this is the start to going around the world with ‘Jal’ ”.
