Pune, 19th October 2023: Marathi film ‘AARYA-Daughter of BHARAT’ directed by Pune-based Nitin Bhaskar and produced by Sharad Patil of SS Film Production, Pune has been awarded a Certificate of Achievement at the World Film Carnival Singapore. The only Marathi Film to be given this honour. Earlier this year, ‘AARYA-daughter of BHARAT’ was also the only Marathi film to be screened at The ‘Bollywood Festival-Norway’.

‘AARYA-Daughter of BHARAT’ is a film based on the 2 distinct sections of India, the modern urban ‘India’ and the traditional rural ‘BHARAT’ as is referred to in the film. The story is about a girl who is caught in the difference between India and BHARAT owing to parents from these two diverse backgrounds. The film handles the differences in culture, technology, and thought processes in an interesting way elevating the curiosity of the audience to know if and how ‘AARYA’ breaks free from these boundaries to explore life on her own terms.

Sharing his happiness on being presented the honorary certificate, Sharad Patil, Producer, ‘AARYA-Daughter of BHARAT’ said, “It is overwhelming that ‘AARYA- Daughter of BHARAT’ is the only Marathi film to have been presented with the Certificate of Achievement at World Film Carnival Singapore. Recently we were also the only Marathi Film to have been selected for screening at The ‘Bollywood Festival-Norway’. We are representing the Marathi Film Industry internationally and such consecutive appreciations heighten our zeal to produce more art films in the coming future.”

Expressing his delight on being given the Certificate of Achievement at World Film Carnival Singapore, Nitin Bhaskar, Director, AARYA-Daughter of BHARAT, said, “I always feel that there are two countries living in our country, one is the modern India and the other is the traditional rural BHARAT. ‘AARYA- Daughter of BHARAT’ is woven around this thought and I wanted the world to see what we experience.”

“After the recent memorable screening at The ‘Bollywood Festival-Norway’ to bag a Certificate of Achievement at World Film Carnival Singapore is encouraging and heartening,” he added further.
