Shamoon’s psyco-thriller ‘Durj’, which is based on the true events of cannibalism that took place in Pakistan, will screen at Cannes Film Festival. The actor will represent the Pakistani movie at the prestigious film festival.

This is not the first time that a Pakistani actor is attending the French festival, as last year Mahira Khan made her debut on Cannes red carpet representing cosmetic brand L’Oreal.

‘Durj’ will release in the UK, US, Canada, UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman and Qatar on October 11. This is the first time a Pakistani movie will be released overseas even before it hits Pakistani cinemas.
