LISFF Bhopal gets Kankana Chakraborty’s docudrama featuring Bollywood’s Iconic Star Amitabh Bachchan

Kankana Chakraborty with Amitabh Bachchan
With a theme line “Lets go BIG with shorts”, LISFF has gone REALLY BIG. After receiving the prestigious entries of short films that have popular Bollywood actors including Naseeruddin Shah, Nawazuddin Siddique, Zeenat Aman, Manjot Singh, Kitu Gidwani and the like, we have received Kankana Chakraborty’s docu-drama “Women Prayed and Preyed Upon” featuring Bollywood’s Iconic Star Amitabh Bachchan.

“A docudrama on violence against women, Kankana’s film highlights the irony that men who prey upon women are the ones who pray to Goddesses. Amitabh Bachchan plays kinda sutradhar who takes the entire story forward and is there throughout the film. The best part of this docudrama it that it has a very hard hitting poem by Sanjeev Tiwari which is sure to bring tears to everyone’s eyes. Having said this, this is one film that is sure to watch out for” mentioned Mahua Mazumdar, Festival Coordinator.

LISFF has also received the Oscar award winning film ‘Curfew’ by Shawn Christensen, four Cannes entry films and even a National Award winner.

Organized by Eon Films in conjunction with O.M. Filmz and coordinated by Aura Events, Codes & Pixels as well as Olivine Ventures, the festival has awards in more than 19 categories. LISFF is also introducing Audience Polls for the People’s Choice Awards as well as Critics Award that will be decided by the critics. In both cases, the winners will take home a statuette of the festival’s mascot.

Interested filmmakers may have their questions asked by contacting organizers at or log on to for more details.

However, the Submissions are closing this July 20th. So Hurry up!!
