Kolkata, April 16 (IBNS): Filmmaker Majid Majidi was in Kolkata, a place he refers to as ” the city of Satyajit Ray”, for the promotion of his upcoming film 'Beyond the Clouds'.

At the promotional event held on Saturday,  Majid Majidi was accompanied by filmmaker and actor Goutam Ghose, Malavika Mohanan (lead actor in Beyond the Clouds), Shareen Mantri Kedia from Namah Pictures and Sujoy Kutty (Business Head, Zee Studios).

'Beyond the Clouds' centers mainly on relationship between siblings, that between a 19-year old drug peddler Amir and his sister Tara.

It attempts to highlight how they steer their lives  through love, hate and despair.

'Beyond the Clouds' is said to be a grown up version of Majidi’s 1997 film “Children of Heaven” and also set in Mumbai.

The first look of the film was released in the BFI London Film Festival in 2017 and is now all set to get released on 20th April, 2018.

Speaking to IBNS, the 58-year old director explained the theme of his choice,"I have visited India several times and especially Mumbai, which led to the development of this kind of a theme which I think is very integral to the city."

The film stars newcomers Malavika Mohanan and Ishaan Khattar in the lead roles while the music has been scored by Academy Award winner A.R. Rahman.

Through this film, Majidi upholds his version of realism and promises to show Mumbai to such depths that even a Mumbaikar would get astonished.

Goutam Ghose, who has featured in a cameo role in the movie, said to IBNS,"There are certain things that local people fail to discover but people who come from outside do it successfully."
