Mumbai, Dec 27 (IANS) Farooque Shaikh and Deepti Naval-starrer "Listen Amaya" will be screened at the 15th London Asian Film Festival, to be held in March next year.

Directed by debutant director Avinash Kumar Singh, the film sees Farooque and Deepti sharing the screen 28 years after their 1983 film "Katha".

The film tells the story of a Amaya and her widowed mother, who begins to develop a relationship with Amaya's friend played by Farooque Shaikh. Swara Bhaskar plays the role of Amaya in the film.

"I am glad and very much happy that this film has been selected for London Asian Film fest. Avinash has tried to say a beautiful story and it is a very sweet film," Farooque told IANS.

"I hope this film gets recognition from everywhere and lots of luck to Avinash," he added.

The film had previously bagged the best feature film and the best director award at the New Jersey Independent South Asian Cinefest. A self-funded film, "Listen Amaya" has received standing ovation wherever it has been screened earlier.
