"Sir", which has won five audience awards at film festivals in France, the US, Netherlands and Germany, has been sold for a theatrical release in over 20 countries.
"We will have covered 12 cities in France before the release. But also to the US, Switzerland, Italy... It is quite literally a crazy journey. But also a dream come true. Now all I want is to have the film seen widely in India," added the director.
Didier Lacourt, Director of Distribution of Diaphana, said: "After the excellent reception in Cannes and at various festivals where the film won each time the Audience Award, we wanted an ambitious release for 'Sir' -- Rohena Gera's first film."
"Prestigious Media will support the film with advertising inserts, Les Inrocks, Telerama, France Culture, Mademoizelle ... as well as many associations close to India and the status of women.
"After 'Devdas' we released in 2002, it is for Diaphana the second major release of an Indian film to which we want to give as much visibility as possible so that the film meets the widest audience possible."
