(Los Angeles, CA – April 1, 2016) After a week-long theatrical run in Washington, D.C., Chicago and San Jose, 23 sold-out screenings at mainstream and South Asian film festivals around North America and multiple audience and jury awards under its belt, the smart, witty, coming-of-age comedy feature, “Miss India America,” will be available on the following broadband platforms starting Tuesday, April 5th: Amazon, GooglePlay, iTunes, Vimeo, Vudu, AT&T, Vubiquity (General, Charter & Verizon), inDemand General, Comcast, Xfinity, Cox, Time Warner Cable, Dish, Direct TV – IPVOD and Sling.
The brainchild of husband/wife creative team Ravi Kapoor (director/co-writer) and Meera Simhan (actor/co-writer), the cross-cultural comedy is set against the backdrop of the Indian beauty pageant world in Los Angeles. Inspired by Simhan’s one-woman-show of the same title, “Miss India America” starsTiya Sircar (The Internship, 17 Again, Vampire Diaries) and Hannah Simone(of Fox television series New Girl fame), along with a supporting cast of talented actors, including Kosha Patel, Satya Bhabha, Cas Anwar, Rizwan Manji, Anjali Bhimani and Bernard White. Produced by Megha Kadakia andSaurabh Kikani and distributed by MarVista Entertainment, the feature film “establishes an authentic tone that pays respect to Indian cultural norms, while poking gentle fun at these traditions,” raves The Hollywood Reporter.
“We feel like our child is finally going out into the world,” said co-producers Kadakia and Kikani. “This journey has been so fulfilling for all of us involved, and we really hope our online audiences support the film and share it with their friends and family members.”
