Bala`s critically acclaimed Paradesi was to be premiered at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival (CFF) in May.
Noted director Anurag Kashyap who saw the film was impressed and was trying to help Bala to screen it at Cannes.
Bala decided to have the Indian domestic release on March 15, through JSK Film Corporation and no overseas release. The plan was not to release it in overseas market as there is a clause at CFF that the films to be screened should not be released anywhere other than their country of origin.
However, B Studios the producers of the film have now decided to release it in the overseas market "to cater to the foreign fans of Bala". It clearly indicates that the film has opted out of the Cannes race.
