Aditi Rao Hydari, Alia Bhatt, Kangna Ranaut, Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Katrina Kaif were among those who attended a special screening of Ship Of Theseus, organized by Aamir Khan.
Kiran Rao is releasing Ship of Theseus in collaboration with UTV Motion Pictures. The film is directed by Anand Gandhi.
Aamir not only hosted a special screening for the film, but also a dinner party.
"Kiran saw this film earlier. She loved it and asked me to see the film. When I saw it, I loved it too. We thought we should promote these kinds of films, so we invited all our friends from the industry for this screening. I wanted them to see the film and meet the star cast," Aamir told reporters at the venue.
Aamir said he had also invited actor Salman Khan for the screening. But he couldn't make it in time as he was busy shooting in Hyderabad, and his flight back to Mumbai was delayed
All those present at the screening were clearly bowled over by the film.
"It was a very wonderful film, very powerful. I don't think any other film has moved me so much as 'Ship Of Theseus'," Ranbir said post the screening. "I think Anand has definitely reached the audience," he added.
The screening was organised by Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao that was attended by actors Rani Mukerji, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra and Ayushmann Khurrana and filmmakers Kunal Kohli and Rajkumar Hirani, among others.
Hirani too is impressed with Gandhi's Ship of Theseus. "This is a film that kind of shakes you from the soul. The film has been made so realistically that I just don't have words ... people have to watch the film to see how it can shake you up," said the director.
"Now it feels that the kind of cinema that we have been making so far is so inconsequential and small," added Hirani, known for films like Munnabhai series and 3 Idiots.
Produced by Soham Shah, Ship Of Theseus is a story about human values, and its narrative surrounds three characters -- an experimental photographer, an ailing monk and a stock broker. The film releases Friday.
