A light-hearted Indian film "Tu Hai Mera Sunday," had its world premiere at the London Film Festival (LFF).
The movie which was screened on Saturday, is based in Mumbai and revolves around amateur footballers.
The film stars popular TV actor Barun Sobti and actress Shahana Goswani.
"It felt like I was doing good things in life after seeing the film and observing the response it has got," Sobti said.
"There was a great energy and a lot of laughter in the hall. It was great to see everyone breathe in the film and it was lovely to see people's acceptance and openness to something we pertain to be niche," Shahana added.
The film directed by Milind Dhaimade is inspired by a real life amateur football group called Juhu Beach United.
"As a filmmaker, when you're making a film, you're not thinking of the audience. The first time the film meets the audience is a tense moment. How the audience reacts makes you feel like you make it or break it.
"It's amazing to see people of different races and different cultures fall in love with this film," Dhaimade said.
