Vidhu Vinod Chopra Film Contribution Recognized by IFFL

After producing hit movies like Munnabhai M.B.B.S and 3 Idiots, Vidhu Vinod Chopra is in cloud nine, and now he will be happier as one more crown added in his feathers. The Indian Film Festival of London (IFFL) is honoring him for his contribution to cinema.

The festival that kicks off on August 25 and ends on August 29, will feature a retrospective of his films will also be organized at the festival, which will come to a closure with a charity screening of 3 Idiots and proceeds of which will go to the United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef). Vinod says,

“3 Idiots is a special film. It’s a film that has changed my own daughter’s outlook towards education and she has taken up classical dancing full time. To have a charity screening for Unicef only echoes what the film is trying to say and we are really proud to be associated with such a noble cause.”

His films like An Encounter With Faces (1978), Parinda (1989), 1942: A Love Story (1993), Eklavya: The Royal Guard (2007) will be screened at the festival.
