Chunky Pandey seen in Shuruaat Ka Twist said, “Honouring some great work, Voot Select Film Festival is the largest cinematic experience in India depicting true, realistic and socially relevant issues of today’s day and age. Highlighting the theme ‘Twist’, my movie Tap Tap in the Shuruaat Ka Twist anthology showcases the struggle of a singer at the twilight of his career to regain his magic. I related a lot while playing this character and thoroughly enjoyed playing it and I am certain that the audience will love it too.”
Speaking about Ek Duaa, Esha Deol said, “It’s an absolute honor to see your work getting an ideal platform like Voot Select Film Festival that is set to showcase many inspirational stories across the storytelling spectrum. I’m extremely proud of ‘Ek Duaa’ which is my home production, and it was an enriching experience to portray the character of Abida who is fighting against gender discrimination in the thresholds of her own house. Ek Duaa is my humble contribution towards such a big issue and I have never been so emotionally invested in any character before. It has truly been a product of sheer hard work that will strike a chord with the audience.”
Popular actor Hina Khan commented “Lines is a very film that is punctuated with unfiltered emotions and a powerful story. It is a beautiful depiction of an innocent couple divided by borders and their struggle of finding their way to each other. I always believe in experimenting and surprising my audience and ‘Lines’ that is a part of Voot Select Film Festival will introduce them to a different side of me. It has been incredible of learning and self-discovering and I hope that my fans like it and appreciate it.”
