Nivin Pauly opens up about attending the premiere of Moothon at the Toronto International Film Festival.Actor Nivin Pauly is very content with the response his new film Moothon received at the recently concluded Toronto International Film Festival. Written and directed by Geetha Mohandas, the film had its world premiere at the 44th edition of the prestigious film festival last week.
“I have no words to express my happiness. Moothon is receiving an amazing response from everyone who watched the film in Toronto. In fact, the movie was screened for two days and the response was phenomenal,” Nivin told.
“This is something we always wanted to do. Take our movies to an international audience. As you know Moothon will now be screened at the Mumbai Film Festival and we are all excited about it,” he added.
Moothon (The Elder One) was screened at the Special Presentations section at TIFF. Before the opening of the film, Geetha Mohandas got emotional about presenting her second feature at the Toronto film festival. “It is an overwhelming feeling for me. Because 20 years back, my father brought me here to this beautiful country as a landed immigrant with big dreams, goals and ambitions for his daughter. Today, I wish he was alive to see my film premiering in Toronto,” she said, as her co-writer and producer Anurag Kashyap stood by her side.
