Radhika Madan as ‘Sanaa’ gears up for Australian premiere

Making waves internationally right now with its intriguing storyline and powerful performances is filmmaker Sudhanshu Saria’s ‘Sanaa’, played by the talented Radhika Madan.

After being screened at multiple film festivals globally, including the Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF), Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival, Santa Barbara International Film Festival, Tongues on Fire UK Asian Film Festival (UKAFF) and more, ‘Sanaa’ is now gearing up for its big Australian premiere at the prestigious Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) 2023.

Pitched as one of the largest annual celebrations of Indian cinema outside of India, IFFM showcases some of the most diverse, inclusive and ground-breaking films year after year encapsulating Indian cinema’s true essence. Marking its 14th edition this year, the festival is scheduled to take place between August 11 and 20. Starring Radhika Madan in the lead, ‘Sanaa’ will have a special gala screening during that week.

Garnering immense acclaim from both the audiences and critics, ‘Sanaa’ tells the story of an ambitious woman who is fighting an internal battle caused by unresolved trauma.

Honoured with the film’s screening at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne 2023, director Sudhanshu Saria said in an official statement: “It’s been phenomenal taking ‘Sanaa’ to audiences in all parts of the world and we are all so excited to meet our audience in Melbourne.

“IFFM has a rich history of bringing pathbreaking cinema to Australia and we’re proud ‘Sanaa’ is included on that list this year."

Written and directed by India’s National Award-winning Saria, ‘Sanaa’ is an introspective drama which also stars Soham Shah, Shikha Talsania and Pooja Bhatt.

“This unique film has a compelling story that celebrates the journey so far for women’s independence.  South Asian women are finally taking control to make their own decisions, be it their career, their bodies or their lives against a slow changing man’s world. ‘Sanaa’ carries a beautiful message of solidarity and sisterhood to challenge generations of gender conditioning and the subtleties of modern misogyny,” said UKAFF Founder and Director Dr Pushpinder Chowdhry MBE.
