Radhika Madan starrer Sanaa selected for the Official Competition of the 23rd New York Indian Film Festival

National Award-winning director Sudhanshu Saria’s upcoming film Sanaa starring Radhika Madan has been selected for the official competition at the 23rd New York Indian Film Festival, North America’s oldest and most prestigious film festival showcasing cinema from India and the Indian diaspora. The festival celebrating cinema from the global Indian community will take place from May 11 to 14, 2023.

Sanaa tells the story of a 28-year-old woman, played by Madan, who is fighting an internal battle caused by unresolved trauma. The film also features a talented cast, including Soham Shah, Shikha Talsania, and Pooja Bhatt. It has already been part of several prestigious film festivals and was the only Indian film to be premiered at both the 26th Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival and the 38th Santa Barbara International Film Festival.

Expressing his excitement and gratitude for being part of the New York Indian Film Festival, director Sudhanshu Saria said, “It is a great honour to have Sanaa selected for the official competition at the New York Indian Film Festival. This festival has been a longstanding champion of independent cinema from the Indian Diaspora, and we are thrilled to have our film showcased alongside such diverse and compelling works. I am excited to attend the festival and engage with fellow filmmakers and audiences.”

Saria’s last film KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK played in the main competition in their 2019 edition and won the Best Screenplay Prize. Sanaa is also set to be a part of the 25th UK Asia Film Festival as an Opening Film, scheduled to take place from May 4 to 13, 2023.
