Shlok Sharma’s directorial ‘Two Sisters And A Husband’, is India’s official entry to the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival in New York this year. Official Selection in the International Narrative Competition, ‘Two Sisters And A Husband’ is a messy, twisted and dingy tale of a family gone wrong.
Shlok Sharma made an impressive debut as a director with ‘Haraamkhor’ (2015) starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Shweta Tripathi. ‘Two Sisters And A Husband’, which he has co-written with his long time creative collaborator and writer, Shilpa Srivastava, is produced by Fundamental Pictures and his company partner Navin Shetty.
Extremely thrilled about his third feature making it in the category of international competition at Tribeca, excited Shlok said, “It is such an honour to just be a part of a festival that has celebrated directors, on who’s films we have literally grown up on. This is the best platform our film could have asked for. My Producer, Navin Shetty and I have dreamt for an opportunity like this. I cannot thank the programmers enough.”
“This story is extremely close to me. It is based on a family in the same situation in our proximity. When I grew older, I continued getting intrigued by them even though I hadn’t met them in years. I collaborated with my writer Shilpa Srivastava and over years, we kept going back, revisiting the circumstances of these characters. And each time I would visit them as a piece of fiction, I would be baffled by their reality. In ‘Two Sisters And A Husband’ I have tried to build the story around them, their only universality being their emotions – pure, unadulterated and relatable”, Shlok Sharma further added.
‘Two Sisters And A Husband’ is all set for its World premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, which is scheduled to be held from June 8th to June 19th, 2022 in New York, US.
