Written and directed by Amit Khanna, the movie is all set to release on Amazon Prime on 9th November 2019.
Shot extensively in Bangkok and Hyderabad, it’s an English –Telugu cross over film that boasts of a never seen before subject. The movie revolves around an orthodox South Indian lady, Indu, who lands up in Bangkok and had to spend time with her gay son’s partner. It stars a blend of International as well as Indian actors including Gurfateh Singh Pirzada, who will soon be seen in Ranbir Kapoor starrer ‘Brahmastra’. The other cast includes Ashlin Harris and Shreedevi Chowdary, who is also the producer of the film.
Making her debut at the age of 47, Shreedevi Chowdary, who hails from Hyderabad says, “I am proud to be associated with such a universal subject which can bring about a revolution in the world. Though it’s my first stint as an actor I am happy and confident that the film will do wonders. Playing Indu was a challenge and I observed a couple of middle aged women around me. The emotional touch between a mom and a son is inevitable.”
Swati Sanghi believes that the subject is extremely universal and people across the world can relate to it. Adds Amit Khanna, “The film is first of its kind and we are hoping it leaves a mark on audiences.” Friends In Law was premiered at the Cannes last year and received a great response.
