Richa Chadha and Rajkummar Rao's Indian-American film Love Sonia will open the Bagri London Indian Film festival. The Festival will open with the world premiere of Life of Pi producer David Womark's Love Sonia on June 21 at Empire Leicester Square, reports variety.com.

The Tabrez Noorani directorial also stars Demi Moore, Freida Pinto, Mark Duplass, Manoj Bajpayee, Anupam Kher and Adil Hussain.

Noorani will attend the opening with some of the talent. The film revolves around two sisters forced into prostitution in Mumbai.

The ninth edition of the fest closes on June 29 at BFI Southbank with the UK premiere of Venus, helmed by Aisha Marjara. It is the story of a transgender person who discovers, on the eve of surgery, about the existence of a son.

The fest is broken into thematic strands covering female filmmakers, father-son relationships and famine among others.

"This cutting edge festival showcases indie cinema that entertains but shows the more realistic and sometimes the raw side of South Asian culture. At the same time, there are always stories of comedy, hope and the inexhaustible energy of over 1.3 billion South Asian lives from the Indian subcontinent," said festival director Cary Rajinder Sawhney.
