Mumbai, Oct 1 (IANS) After its world premiere at the Madrid International Film Festival, filmmaker Tanuja Chandras debut documentary, “Aunty Sudha Aunty Radha” will now be screened at Jio MAMI 21st Mumbai Film Festival with Star.

And what’s also very cool is that not just my documentary but my short film, A Monsoon Date, starring Konkona will be screened at the American festivals as well!”
