By NewsDesk • Published on June 30, 2012

The Intouchables directed by Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano which won Omar Sy the César Award for Best Actor will release in India on July 13, 2012.

Omar Sy won the César Award, the National Film award of France for his portrayal of Driss in the film by defeating Jean Dujardin, nominated for The Artist.

The Intouchables also won the Grand Prix award for Best Film and the Award for Best Actor to both Francois Cluzet and Omar Sy at the Tokyo International Film Festival 2011.

“After a paragliding accident, when Philippe, a rich Parisian aristocrat, needs a live-in caretaker, he encounters many clones of qualified people in an interview. Driss, a strapping inner-city crook, shows up for this interview with the intention of being rejected. However, impressed with his irreverence, Philippe hires him. What follows is the formation of a great bond between the two, as they help each other across some of the challenges in store for them,” goes the synopsis of the film.

The film will be released in India by Tanweer group.
