Brett Lee’s film ‘unINDIAN’ to release on October 15
Former Australian cricketer Brett Lee-starer “unINDIAN”, an Indian-Australian film, will hit theatres down under on October 15 this year.
The cross-cultural comedy, starring the cricketer and Tannishtha Chatterjee, has been directed by Indian-origin Sydney-based filmmaker Anupam Sharma.
The film was shot in Sydney last summer and is the first production of the Australia India Film Fund (AIFF).
“unINDIAN” is an Australian romantic comedy which follows the chequered path of Aussie bloke Will as he attempts to woo the gorgeous Indian woman Meera, who lives in Sydney with her daughter.
Other cast of the film include John Howard, Tiriel Mora, Maya Sathimoorthy, Arka Das, Sarah Roberts, Adam Dunn, Nicholas Brown, Kumu Merani, Bollywood stars Supriya Pathak Kapur, Akash Kurana and Pallavi Sharda.
“unINDIAN” is being released in Australia by a successful distributor Friends India Entertainment (FIE), with respected distribution consultant Tait Brady working alongside FIE’s Vvikas Paul on the release.
Former Screen Australia executive Kathleen Drumm is consulting to the producers on the international distribution strategy and Tracey Mair’s TM Publicity will manage the Australian publicity and promotions campaign.
“’unINDIAN’ is a hugely entertaining film and we know audiences across Australia are going to fall in love with its wonderful cast of characters, including Brett Lee in his first starring role. It is set to be a real breakthrough release in this country for a cross-cultural film that speaks to the mainstream Australian audience, and we will be backing it with a huge marketing and publicity campaign that will see the film on more than 80 screens nationally from October 15,” Tait Brady said.
