Organised by HarperCollins India in association with Habitat Film Festival, Harper@Cinema will also see a performance of R D Burman songs by his biographers Balaji Vittal and Anirudha Bhattacharjee.

The 13th Habitat Film Festival is from May 17-27.

According to Vidyun Singh, director (programmes) at India Habitat Centre, "The content and experts add a meaningful and important element to the festival and the HarperCollins Day promises to be one of the popular highlights."
