THE LUNCHBOX, a film written and directed by Ritesh Batra that had its world premiere in the Cannes Critics' Week this year has 17 global co-producers. It is first such Indian film to have been produced through an extensive global co-production route. The film has already recovered its cost of production and made profits through the sale of its rights in various overseas territories even before its release in India. It is releasing in India on 20th September 2013 after having completed a very successful festival run around the globe. It will be presented to Indian audiences by Karan Johar and distributed by UTV Disney. The film stars Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Denzil Smith, Nakul Vaid and Lillete Dubey.
