In what must be a good augury for young music director G V Prakash Kumar, Oscar-Grammy winner A R Rahman' nephew, a film for which he has scored the music has been selected for the prestigious Cannes film festival, in the non-competitive category.
Anurag Kashyap's Gangs of Wasseypur, for which the music director has worked, will be screened at the Cannes festival, albeit in the non - competitive category. Sources said that it will have a world premiere there and will be showcased with around 20 other films from around the world.
Interestingly, Reema Sen of Minnale fame is part of the cast which includes Manoj Bajpai, Jaideep Ahlawat and Tigmanshu Dhulia.
The film was initially rumoured to be a remake of the Tamil hit Subramanyapuram (2008), but was later revealed that the script was entirely different from the former.
