Beyond The Clouds is undoubtedly one of 2018’s most anticipated films not just in India but across the world. The trailer launch of the film with the film’s entire team – actors Ishaan Khattar, Malavika Mohannan, music director A R Rahman, the producers from Zee Studios and Namah Pictures and ofcourse Mr Majidi himself – the response to it was a reaffirmation of that very belief. The excitement to witness the magic of the legendary Majid Majidi on screen created in our very own country was palpable with the love showered for the film’s trailer by industry members and audiences alike who welcomed the film’s first glance with much fanfare.

The film has many firsts for us to be proud of – an all India team under Mr Majidi’s leadership, a platform for two brilliant debutants and an India story showcased by such a legendary artist. We decided to make this change in the release date as not everyday do you get such an opportunity with such promise and such brilliant talent.”
