Ankahee Baatein is the story of the couple who lives in Mumbai, and how they lose their relationship because of lack of conversation.
Apparently, Avika and Manish also launched posters of two other short films - Almost and When I Met Myself, at the film festival.
Manish said in a statement that both films are super special for them for two reasons. First, it is happening in Cannes; and second, the super special people are launching this poster for them - Mohan Kumar (Ambassador of India to France) and Lavanya Kumar (First Secretary of Press, Information and Culture, Paris).
The event was also attended by Satyapaul (Protocol Officer of the Indian Embassy), Suresh Sharma (attaché cultural Paris), Satish Reddy (World News Network Managing Director) and others.
We had already reported that Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hai actress Saumya Tandon is also at Cannes. Saumya is an entrepreneur with a venture titled 1018mb and intends to connect with the film fraternity across the world at the Cannes Film Festival.
Last year, Bigg Boss 8 winner Gautam Gulati made it to Cannes. The short film titled Darpok, directed by Rakesh Mehta, starring Gauti was screened at the Cannes International Film Festival's short film corner.
