I look forward to the special screening of Sanju for the students at La Trobe. It would be an interesting experience to see the reactions of those who are almost alien to Hindi films and the life of Sanjay Dutt”
This year, the festival is delighted and proud to present Rajkumar Hirani as the key guest who will celebrate Indian Cinema along with the diaspora at IFFM. The director who’s currently riding on a huge success wave after his film Sanju has gone on to becoming the highest grosser of 2018.

Sanju, the film follows the life of Sanjay Dutt, his relationship with his father, descent into alcoholism and drug addiction, arrest for involvement in the 1993 Bombay bombings, comeback in the film industry, and eventual release after completing his jail term.
