This year’s most notable Tamil film Super Deluxe starring Samantha Akkineni, Vijay Sethupathi will be screened at IFFM. While the entire team is currently there, actress Samantha Akkineni gave it a miss as she is busy with the shooting of her upcoming film, which is a remake of Tamil film, 96. Super Deluxe is an action drama thriller, released in Tamil. It is an unusual film with a lot of subjective matter.

Shah Rukh Khan, in his trademark charm, at the event quipped, “Many years ago in 2006-07, I came here when I was a rising superstar giving hit films after hit films. And now I am back here again, still a rising superstar not making as many hit films (chuckles), as much as I would want to do so. I thank everyone for the opportunity to speak here. When I was shooting for Chak De in the city, I used to play Trivial (a game) with crew members on set. Because of being an Indian film actor, we often feel localised. It’s thus heartening that because of the Indian diaspora - the second generation of Indians here (people like Mitu) Indian cinema is getting noticed. It’s extremely gratifying and makes every Indian proud. I speak for everyone on the dais today, that we are happy to be here.”
