Mumbai: Seventh annual Washington, DC, South Asian Film Festival (DCSAFF) will begin on 7 September at the Montgomery College in Rockville, MD.

A nearly three-dozen independent feature, short and documentary films will be screened at the three-day festival.

Aishwarya Rai has not left any stone unturned to put India on the global map! Now, we hear that the actress is all set to attend the WIFT Award Gala in Washington on 8 September and will be honoured with the Meryl Streep Award, given to an actor’s exceptional work in cinema.

The source is saying, “It’s an exclusive affair and very hush-hush. Everything is under wraps as they want to announce Aishwarya’s award at the WIFT India Award Night, hosted by the seventh annual South Asian Film Festival (DCSAFF) at 7:00 PM at the Hyatt Regency Bethesda in Washington, DC.”

The festival showcases screening of features, documentaries and shorts and includes some of the best cinema from South Asian countries like India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka. Zeenat Aman was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award last year. The Meryl Streep Award was constituted for women in films and television.

DCSAFF, 2018 will begin on 7 September at the Montgomery College in Rockville, MD. Two Bollywood films will be shown on the opening and closing days – 5 Rupaiya, starring Shabana Azmi on 7 September and 5 Weddings, starring Rajkummar Rao, Bo Derek, Candy Clark, Anneliese Van der Pol and Nargis Fakhri on 9 September, respectively. There will also be a panel discussion on the closing night with Catherine Hand, Kimberly Skyrme, Namrata Singh Gujral and Petrina Drosario.

On the work front, Aishwarya will next be seen in the remake of yesteryear film, Raat Aur Din and Woh Kaun Thi. She was last seen in Fanney Khan, but the movie tanked at the box office.
