“Writing and Directing a Documentary Film (Biopic) based on Padma Shri Anup Jalota and on his Life Journey is like a dream come true for any writer and director’s life. He is one of the legendary and finest singers of our nation. Getting an approval letter from him to write and direct a documentary film on his life journey is like winning an Award for me before even directing it. I have no words to express my feelings and really want to thank him for expressing his love, support, and blessings by giving me this opportunity. About the documentary shoot on Anup Ji, we will start working on it once he gets free from his other projects,” said Devashish.

“Apart from this, I am also doing one suspense thriller feature film as a writer and director for which I will announce the star casts soon. Things are a bit slow due to pandemic issues rising in Maharashtra, but I hope people will continue taking safety measures and the COVID-19 vaccine will bring the situation under control,” he added.

Moonwhite Films International Film Fest (MWFIFF) is based on the idea of providing an outstanding and unbiased platform to film fraternities from across the globe. It has a completely different set of rules when it comes to recognising talented actors, actresses, directors, screenplay writers, and other technicians. This is possible because of Padma Shri Anup Jalota who is on board as a presenter of the Film Fest.

MWFIFF’s vision is to bring countries together through creative exchange and ideas which includes individuals, companies, film magazines, journalists, and a plethora of entities who work behind the scenes. Film Fest also aims to award creative folks based on merit and their achievements and not simply because of their past laurels.

Beverages Free: Apart from No Tickets Charges for movie screening for filmmakers and others, MWFIFF also provides free beverages on screening day for the number of tickets issued to watch the movies.

Media Platforms Open for All: MWFIFF believes in equality and brings everyone under one roof where all filmmakers, stars, VIPS, come together and can interact with the media on the same platform and share their experience.
