Six Indian films are set to be screened at 52nd London Film Festival to be held mid-October.

Veteran Bollywood director Shyam Benegal's maiden comedy Welcome to Sajjanpur and critically acclaimed actress Nandita Das ’ directorial debut Firaaq are among six Indian films.




The festival, organised by the British Film Institute, will screen over 180 feature films from more than 40 countries from 15 to 30 October.

Starring Shreyas Talpade and Amrita Rao , 'Welcome to Sajjanpur' is the story of an educated village youth who, instead of fulfilling his ambition to become a novelist, starts writing letters to earn a living.

With Naseeruddin Shah and Deepti Naval in the lead roles, 'Firaaq' is set against a backdrop of communal riots and its aftermath which alters the lives of its characters. This film has also been nominated for the FIPRESCI Critics Award.

The other Indian films are Santosh Sivan directed Tahaan , Ketan Mehta's Rang Rasiya ‘Colours of Passion', Shashank Ghosh's 'Quick Gun Murugan' and Atul Sabharwal's short film 'Midnight Lost and Found'.

The festival will also screen Mehreen Jabbar's Ramchand Pakistani , a film which depicts a Pakistani Hindu father and son who are arrested as they accidentally cross the border into India.
