Rasika Dugal starrer Lord Curzon Ki Haveli will have its world premiere at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM), as the Centrepiece Spotlight Film (Official Selection - out of competition). 

Lord Curzon Ki Haveli was filmed in the UK last year and is reportedly the first mainstream Indian feature film to be shot on a single lens. Jha shared his enthusiasm about the film’s premiere in Melbourne and said, “I am thrilled to present Lord Curzon Ki Haveli at Indian Film Festival Of Melbourne 2023. I thank the jury at IFFM 2023 for selecting us as the Centrepiece Spotlight. And I am very grateful to my team (cast & crew) & Golden Ratio Films for their trust & support through this challenging but memorable experience…I hope Mr Alfred Hitchcock is blessing us from there as this is my homage to him.”

Dugal also commented on the film beginning its festival run in Melbourne and said, “I am delighted that our film is premiering at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne, which always has a discerning audience with an appetite for fun! It was an absolute joy collaborating with and playing off, my co-actors who helped me experience Ira in a very special way - a woman who navigates and negotiates patriarchy with an undeniable spirit and with a sense of mischief. I hope the film resonates with the audience.”

The film also stars Arjun Mathur, Paresh Pahuja, Zoha Rahman and Tanmay Dhaninia.
