Pooja Batra’s Hollywood debut film’s trailer shown at Cannes

Cannes, May 20 (IANS) The world premiere and the trailer launch of “One Under the Sun”, starring Bollywood actress Pooja Batra, took place at the ongoing Cannes Film Festival.


The former beauty queen, who set her Bollywood aspirations aside to marry Los Angeles-based orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Sonu Ahluwalia, was spotted having her moment under the sun here.

The “Virasat” actress, dressed in a white sari at the gala, looked excited about her Hollywood debut in which she essays the role of an astronaut.

“It is a proud moment for me to play the lead in my first Hollywood film. It is a great role. In order to prepare for it, I needed to really dig deep into myself and my feelings to find honest inspiration. For my physical appearance, I took hints from Indian-born astronaut Kalpana Chawla and American astronaut Sunita Williams,” Pooja Batra said in a statement.

Executive producer Sunny Vachher, who “always believed” in Pooja, said “she has what it takes, a true go-getter”.

“One Under the Sun” is the story of astronaut Kathryn Voss (Pooja), a sole survivor of a disastrous space shuttle mission. As a distraught mother desperate to reunite with her terminally ill daughter, she becomes a wanted fugitive after discovering she possesses an extraordinary gift.

Co-director Vincent Tran has praised Pooja for her hard work and dedication towards the project.

He said: “Pooja’s acting in ‘One Under the Sun’ brings audiences on an emotional journey and challenges their notions of war.”

The trailer launch took place recently at the Indian Pavilion of Cannes Film Festival where Sunny Vachher, Isha Vachher, Thomas Pierce, co-director Riyanna Hartley, managing director of World News Network Satish Reddy, co-director Vincent Tran, Pooja, actor Rich Paul, executive producer Mike LeBlanc were present along with many delegates from India and the international film fraternity.
