This month, the 54th International Film Festival of India (IFFI) is all set to unfold its cinematic extravaganza in the vibrant land of Goa.

Farrey marks the Bollywood debut of Salman Khan’s niece Alizeh Agnihotri. It is directed by the National Award winning director Soumendra Padhi. The upcoming movie delves into the complex world of academic deception, where a scholarship recipient, the orphaned genius Niyati, becomes unwittingly entangled in a high-stakes cheating racket orchestrated by her affluent peers.

IFFI, known for celebrating the best in global cinema, will provide a fitting stage for the film’s premiere, offering audiences a glimpse into the intricate narrative and stellar performances that define “Farrey.” The movie will be screened alongside Kantara, Shershah, Sirf Ek Banda.
Salman Khan expressed happiness saying, “IFFI is a very prestigious event and am happy that Farrey is being screened at it. I have some fond memories of IFFI over the years and with Farrey making it to the esteemed panel it feels like a full circle. I wish the entire team of Farrey the very best and hope the audience enjoys the film.”
National award winning Director Soumendra Padhi said, “‘Farrey’ is a reflection of the intricacies between ambition and morality. We’ve woven a narrative that challenges perceptions and unravels the consequences of choices made in pursuit of success. “Farrey” also holds a special place as it marks the start of Alizeh’s cinematic journey, making the IFFI experience even more memorable for her. I hope it resonates with the audience, sparking conversations and leaving a mark on viewers.”
