Dibakar Banerjee Screens 'Shanghai' For IAS Officers In Mussoorie

While Dibakar Banerjee's Shanghai is all set to mark its world premiere at the forthcoming IIFA awards in Singapore, the filmmaker held a special screening of the movie for IAS officers in Mussoorie.

Also present at the screening along with Banerjee, at the screening, was film's main lead Abhay Deol, who plays a Tamil IAS officer in the flick, and producer Priya Sreedharan.

"The screening has just happened and we are all very excited about it. When we were making the film we had thought of showing it to IAS officers because Abhay's character is from their world. Dibakar referred his IAS friends for Abhay's role. We thought it would be great to show it to the officers as a token of gratitude," Sreedharan was quoted saying.

"We are hoping that we haven't made any glaring mistakes which will upset the officers. We hope that they like and enjoy the film. Abhay has done a fabulous job and full justice to the character. We just want to entertain them from the film," she further added.

The film also stars Kalki Koechlin and Emraan Hashmi alongside Deol and is slated to release on June 8, 2012.
