Aamir Khan's production Laapataa Ladies which is directed by Kiran Rao received a positive response at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

Aamir and Kiran expressed their gratitude for receiving such an incredible response to their project.

Kiran also shared her excitement and added, "There's no better reward for a filmmaker than to experience firsthand the laughter, tears, and applause of your audience, and at TIFF we were delighted and humbled by it. A big thank you for all the support and love we received, and looking forward now to bringing Laapataa Ladies to theatres at home in India and the rest of the world in January."

The synopsis of Laapataa Ladies reads, "Set in 2001, somewhere in rural India, LOST LADIES is about the delightful adventures of two young brides who get accidentally swapped on a train. In the ensuing chaos, they each encounter a host of colourful characters, resulting in hilarious and unexpected consequences."

The film stars Nitanshi Goel, Pratibha Ranta, Sparsh Shrivastava, Chhaya Kadam, and Ravi Kishan in lead roles. Based on a story by Biplab Goswami, the film’s screenplay and dialogues are written by Sneha Desai with additional dialogues by Divyanidhi Sharma.
