|The Mausam team has a reason to smile. The film will premiere at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). Shahid Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor will be there at the festival to dazzle together on the red carpet.
After initial hiccups and long and exhausting schedule of the film, Mausam is ready to release on September 16. The film is a love story. Director Pankaj Kapur explains what Mausam is about: its first season starts with mere adolescent attraction between a Punjabi boy Harry (Shahid Kapoor) and a Kashmiri girl Aayat (Sonam Kapoor), in a small village of Punjab.
It develops into young love between them in season two. Their love realizes its own depth in the hours of separation throughout season three. In the fourth and final season their love culminates into togetherness. But not before sacrificing a lot personally and learning the truth behind universal love. It is a passionate love story which sees, as its background, various shades of life, questioning us and yet not becoming indulgent.
Fans in Canada are crazy about Bollywood films, and with a passionate film like Mausam showcasing in TIFF, they will be delighted. The last Indian film to premiere in Toronto was Aamir Khan's film Dhobi Ghat; the movie received fabulous response from the audiences, and we can expect the same for Mausam.
The entire cast and crew of the film will be present at the premiere on September 14 in Toronto. We are curious to know what Shahid and Sonam will wear on the red carpet.
