Lord Curzon Ki Haveli to be the Closing Night Film at the at the UK-Asian Film Festival

Rasika Dugal and Arjun Mathur starrer Lord Curzon Ki Haveli will be the Closing Night Film at the UK-Asian Film Festival.

Directed by Anshuman Jha, the film, which had its World Premiere at IFFM Australia, it's North American Premiere at CSAFF Chicago, it's Canadian Premiere at ISAFF Vancouver, it's European Premiere at Razor Reel Film festival and it's Indian Premiere at WENCH and Red Lorry - will finally go back to Britain where it has been shot.

Talking about the film having its British premiere, director Anshuman Jha said, "It feels like the film has come a full circle. Lord Curzon Ki Haveli is about Asians in the UK. We shot it in Yorkshire - 4 hours from London. And I feel the festival journey of the film over the past 9 months through IFFM Australia, CSAFF North America, ISAFF Canada, Razor Reel Europe, Wench & Red Lorry in India - is now rightfully culminating at the UK-Asian Film Festival 2024.”

Talking about the film, actor Arjun Mathur said, "I found the script of this film to be wacky and weird - from the outset. I think that's what initially attracted me, the fact that I did not get to categorise into any one particular genre and in a good way - is it a thriller, a black comedy, a mystery.”

Lord Curzon Ki Haveli also features Zoha Rahman, Paresh Pahuja and Tanmay Dhanania.
