The festival's opening film is Mira Nair's "Vanity Fair". Nair is expected to attend, although it is not known if any of her star cast will be there.

A. P. Parigi, co-ordinator of the project, who also hopes to organise free concerts on Goa's famed beaches during the festival week, told IANS:

"From the moment visitors arrive in Goa to the time they leave, they will have a lifetime's experience."

Ghai is thrilled that his film's music, to be released globally by Sony in December, is being presented to an international audience.

National award winners A. R. Rahman and Ismail Darbar have composed the film's music and Javed Akhtar has penned the songs.
