The producers will be selling the film to various territories, particularly India, through their global sales agents, Yellow Affair at Cannes.
Speaking from Cannes, Miira Paasillinna and Chris Howard from Yellow Affair said, "We are delighted to be selling this warm and funny Australian film. There have been many queries from India because of the Bollywood cast in the film and also the popularity of Brett Lee and of cricket there.
