Filmmaker Soumendra Padhi’s upcoming film Farreywill have its premiere at the upcoming 54th International Film Festival of India (IFFI), the makers announced on Friday.
Penned by Abhishek Yadav and Padhi, Farrey delves into the complex world of academic deception, where a scholarship recipient, the orphaned genius Niyati, becomes unwittingly entangled in a high-stakes cheating racket orchestrated by her affluent peers. Produced by Reel Life Production, the thriller is presented by Salman Khan Films (SKF), Mythri Movie Makers, and Athena. It marks the acting debut of Salman’s niece Alizeh Agnihotri.
“Farrey is a reflection of the intricacies between ambition and morality. We’ve woven a narrative that challenges perceptions and unravels the consequences of choices made in pursuit of success. Farrey also holds a special place as it marks the start of Alizeh’s cinematic journey, making the IFFI experience even more memorable for her. I hope it resonates with the audience, sparking conversations and leaving a mark on viewers,” the director said in a statement.
Salman said IFFI is a prestigious event and he is happy that Farrey is being screened at the festival.
“I have some fond memories of IFFI over the years and with ‘Farrey’ making it to the esteemed panel it feels like a full circle. I wish the entire team of Farrey the very best and hope the audience enjoys the film,” the superstar said.
Alizeh is the daughter of Salman’s sister Alivra Khan Agnihotri and her husband, filmmaker Atul Agnihotri.
Farrey also stars Sahil Mehta, Zeyn Shaw, Prasanna Bisht, Ronit Bose Roy, and Juhi Babbar Soni in pivotal roles.
