Adil will be the chief guest at the event, which will also be attended by Pickurflick founder and CEO Abhishek Sinha and National Award-winning filmmaker Utpal Borpujari.

The critically acclaimed actor has starred in films like Life of Pi, English Vinglish, Parched and, more recently, Mukti Bhawan.

The digital platform is famous for its Pickurflick Indie Film Festival (PIFF), a multilingual film gala which made its debut last year.

The fest screened 70 films over four categories in more than 10 languages — with 52 shorts, seven features, eight animations and three documentaries spread over 23 Spanish films, 14 silent films, 17 Hindi films, four Bengali, Assamese, Nepali, Persian, German, Arabic, French, Russian and Kurdish films.

Adil will next be seen in Bioscopewala, an extrapolation of Rabindranath Tagore's Kabuliwala. The film, directed by Deb Medhekar, also features the legendary actor Danny Denzongpa with Geetanjali Thapa, Tisca Chopra and Ekavali Khanna.
