By NewsDesk • Published on June 7, 2011

Delhi Belly directed by Abhinay Deo, and produced by Aamir Khan will open the second edition of the London Indian Film Festival on June 30, 2011.

“Irreverent, crude and downright rude this fabulous new comedy caper from modern Mumbai cocks its hat at bad-boy cults like Snatch and The Hangover, with perhaps a little peppering of the Beatles,” reads the synopsis of the film on the festival’s official website.

The other films that will be screened at the festival are: Rang Rasiya by Ketan Mehta, Riding The Stallion Of a Dream by Girish Kasaravalli, The White Elephant by Aijaz Khan, The Way Home by Dr. Biju Kumar, That Girl in Yellow Boots by Anurag Kashyap, Memories in March by Sanjoy Nag, Just Another Love Story by Kaushik Ganguly, Shukno Lanka (Dry Red Chillies) by Gaurav Pandey and Ladli Laila (Virgin Goat) by Murali Nair.

Bengali film Autograph directed by Srijit Mukherji will be the closing film of the festival. The winning film of Satyajit Ray Foundation International Short Film Competition will be screened on the closing night of the festival and awarded £1,000 prize.

London Indian Film Festival was launched in 2010.
