India "best choice" to shoot outside Iran: Majid Majidi

Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

Iranian filmmaker says was the "best choice" to shoot outside his country, as the two nations share a lot of cultural similarities.

Majidi, who was recently in the city for the promotion of his first Hindi 'Beyond the Clouds', said it is difficult for a filmmaker to go out of his own country, unless there is cultural connection.

"We have a place in called Baloch. It's very close to Indian culture ? the clothes they wear, the language they speak. I shot my first (Baduk 1992) there," he said.

added that Baloch also feels much like in terms of the customs and rituals.

"All these factors made me think that if I were to make a out of Iran, would be the best choice," he said.

'Beyond the Clouds', set to hit the screens on April 20, was shot in in and centres around a brother-sister relationship.

The film, which has original score by A R Rahman, stars Ishaan Khatter and Malavika Mohanan in the lead.
