​‘Section 375’ To Be Screened At Shanghai International Festival In China
Film ‘Section 375’ featuring Akshay Khanna and Richa Chadha was quite successful in impressing its audience. The courtroom drama film proved out to be an eye-opener for every citizen. The film will be now screened at the 23rd Shanghai International Festival in China.
Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF) which is scheduled to held in the next week from 25th July to 2nd August, will screen Section 375 on the dates of 26, 30, 31 July, and 1, 2 August.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the details on his Instagram handle, “UPDATE… #Section375 – starring #AkshayeKhanna and #RichaChadha - will be screened at 23rd Shanghai International Film Festival in #China... Screening dates: 26, 30, 31 July, and 1, 2 Aug 2020... Directed by Ajay Bahl. #SIFF”  
‘Section 375’ revolves around a movie director who has been convicted of raping a junior assistant on the set. He engages a criminal defense lawyer played by Akshaye Khanna to represent him for his appeal before the High Court. He is opposed by Richa Chadha’s character, who plays the public prosecutor.
The defense, after claiming at first that there was no sexual intercourse at all, later changes its version, arguing that it was simply an affair gone sour and that the woman filed a false case of rape for revenge after being spurned by the man. It is eventually revealed that the rape case was indeed false, but the man is convicted nonetheless.
The film is produced by Kumar Mangat Pathak, Abhishek Pathak, and SCIPL, written by Manish Gupta and directed by Ajay Bahl. The film also stars Meera Chopra and Rahul Bhatt. The film was theatrically released on 13 September 2019.
