Michelle Carey, Head of Programming, said, "We're thrilled to present the film ISHQIYA at our Festival this year, as part of our spotlight on India, 'Not Quite Bollywood'. The film impresses with its energy and humour and we think it will play beautifully to the Melbourne audience".
Hiren Gada, Director, Shemaroo Entertainment, said, "ISHQIYA has been screened in four other international film festivals and now it scores five with MIFF. Within a very short span of time, ISHQIYA has emerged as a favourite in the international market and film festival circuit."
