Veteran star Shabana Azmi will hoist the tricolour at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) 2023.

“I am happy to be a part of the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne and deeply honoured to have been chosen to hoist the Indian national flag on this momentous occasion. IFFM has consistently showcased the incredible diversity and creativity of Indian cinema, and it is heartwarming to be part of such a prestigious event that brings our cinema to global audiences.
