Starring Mukhtar alongside Rubya Chaudhry, 'Bench' had been shortlisted for the Cannes International Independent Film Festival in September.
“With great humility, joy and pride do we announce that Bench has been selected at the first Cannes International Independent Film Festival – CIIFF,” Mukhtar shared at that time.
Back in July, ‘Bench’ won big internationally at South Shore Film Festival, New York!
Directed by Usman Mukhtar and written by Ali Mudar, the story revolves around the struggles faced by a couple (played by Rubya and Usman).
Congratulations to the entire team of the film!
