National award-winning filmmaker Janaki Vishwanathan’s maiden Hindi movie Bakrapur has been selected for the Mumbai International Film Festival. The festival is being held from October 17 to 24. Bakrapur has an unusual protagonist — a goat named ‘Shah Rukh’. The 90-minute film scripted and directed by Vishwanathan stars Anshuman Jha, Asif Basra, Faiz Khan, Shameen Khan and Suruchi Aulakh.

The movie is said to be a social-political satire set against the backdrop of rural India. It dwells, at the primary level, on the relationship between eight-year-old Zulfi and his pet goat Shah Rukh.
