B-town actors Sayani Gupta's THE HUNGRY and Ali Fazal's VICTORIA AND ABDUL have been selected as the official entry to the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival' 2017.

THE HUNGRY is a film directed by Bornila Chaterjee and stars Naseeruddin Shah, Sayani Gupta and Tisca Chopra, while VICTORIA AND ABDUL is a film directed by Stephen Frears and has Ali Fazal paired opposite Judi Dench. 

Talking about his film’s selection Ali Fazal shared, “This is totally grand, TIFF is always known for its select films and that is very interesting to know that we have been selected for that and we are having our world premiere there.”

Sharing her happiness Sayani Gupta says, “I'm ecstatic that THE HUNGRY has been selected for TIFF. It's an absolute honour being selected for TIFF and is extremely rewarding that this is the third year that my film is premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival after MARGARITA WITH A STRAW and PARCHED. So it's a hattrick for me! Working with Bornila was like a dream. All along the shooting we (the cast and crew) felt that we were creating something special. She is so young but incredibly sorted, brilliant and completely in control of the craft. It was also a fantastic star cast including Naseer, Tisca, Neeraj Kabi, Suraj Sharma, Antonio, Arjun, Karan Pandit, Savita. But the cherry on the cake has to be working with Naseer on this film. I play his daughter in the film and he really made the coolest father there ever could be! We are all excited with the TIFF premiere and also looking forward to it also because this year its focus is women.”
