The International Gujarati Film Festival brings to the fore some of the most compelling and interesting Gujarati films from around the world under one common roof. Shu Thayu has been selected alongside the best in Gujarati films.

An elated Mahesh Danannavar commented, “When we made Shu Thayu, we wanted to create something that will entertain the audiences thoroughly and I'm thrilled to see that it has done that, not just nationally but internationally as well. The nomination at the International Gujarati Film Festival is a huge encouragement and reassurance that we are on the right track. As a producer for the first time, there are a lot of risks one takes and this recognition is a morale boost for the whole team. Let's hope we bring it home!”
