New Delhi: Veteran actor Gulshan Grover, whose web-film Badman has been invited for screening at the Moscow International Film Festival and London Indian Film Festival, says he never thought that something made for the internet will be shown at international festivals.

Badman will be screened at the Moscow International Film Festival on Saturday and London Indian Film Festival on June 27.

"I never thought that what was made for the internet will be shown in international festivals. It will be shown at Leicester Square on June 24 and June 25 on Wembley, London, June 26 - Birmingham and June 27 in Stratford. Four different large cinemas are going to screen the film and at the biggest theatre in Moscow. Yes, it is something that excites me," Gulshan said.

Talking about the achievements made by Badman, Gulshan, who will be flying to Moscow on Tuesday, pointed out that the Soumik Sen directorial is India's first mockumentary feature film.

"All characters are real. Within these characters, the story is woven. Some of it is real, some is made up. The incidents and scenes are created, but the people are real. 'Badman' is also India's first original feature film for the digital audience.

"Because what is happening is companies are making a lot of content for the viewers on the digital platform, but most of it are in the form of series, no one has made an original feature film. They are giving viewers yesterday's films to watch on the digital," Gulshan said.

"It is also for the first time that an actor's iconic character that has gained popularity and the same actor has been chosen to play the hero of that film. So there are many firsts.

"It is a film that was meant for digital viewing in India, has broken boundaries and it is liked by the Russian film selection committee of the film festival who watched the film and put this up as the opening film of the Indian Panorama. It was also loved by the London film festival curator, who watched the film and simultaneously it will be shown at the London Indian Film Festival," he added.
