CM Devendra Fadnavis' wife Amruta poses at the screening of Pihu. The movie had opened the International Film Festival of India (IFFI), Goa, last year, and had elicited a positive response with its edge-of-the-seat drama. Kapri described it as a "completely family film".
Pihu features Myra Vishwakarma (in pic), a two-year-old girl in the title role who gets trapped inside her house with no escape.

It is one of a kind in every aspect as it is the only film in the history of cinema to have just one character throughout, played by a 2-year-old child.
It is a gripping thriller and will have audiences on the edge of their seats till the last frame.
