New Delhi: Parineeti Chopra and Sushant Singh Rajput`s ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’ is heading to `videshi` shores for a Gala Red Carpet Premiere at the esteemed Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) 2013.

The screening, to be held Sep 11, will be attended by director Maneesh Sharma and writer Jaideep Sahni, along with Sushant, Parineeti and debutant Vaani Kapoor. It will take place at the Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto.

Officials at the Yash Raj Films (YRF) are delighted with the news, and hope it strikes the right chords with the audiences.

"We believe the film is perfect for Toronto, as it is a film that is rooted in rustic India and the characters are very contemporary in their thought, which will no doubt appeal to the diaspora but also the more mainstream audiences," Avtar Panesar, vice president (International Operations), YRF, said in a statement.

‘Shuddh Desi Romance’ is said to be a fresh narrative about love, attraction and commitment. Its first trailer gave movie buffs a taste of the movie, which seems to have captured the everyday relationship adventures, woes and fears of today`s youth.
