Anurag Kashyap`s `Ugly`, which created waves at the Cannes International Film Festival earlier this year, made its Asia premiere here and left an audience full of filmmakers, army trainees and media, numb with its `ugliness`.
At the Ladakh International Film Festival (LIFF), filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is ready to launch two projects close to his heart - a book, which is a screenplay of his 2006 film `Rang De Basanti`, and `Ru Ba Ru`, a documentary film on the effect and impact of the Aamir Khan-starrer.
It was a double treat for `Chak De! India` actress Shilpa Shukla when she got a chance to visit this Jammu and Kashmir region this time of the year - when she could attend the ongoing Ladakh International Film Festival (LIFF) as well as the 33rd initiation of Kalachakra with the Dalai Lama.
The third edition of the Ladakh International Film Festival (LIFF) to be held in Leh June 27-29, will have multiple highlights - while Anurag Kashyap`s `Ugly` will have a green carpet premiere, there will be a special retrospective on the globally acclaimed filmmaker Akiro Kurosawa.
