Director Madhur Bhandarkar has been invited at the 35th Cairo International Film Festival, starting November 27, to judge a segment.

Bhandarkar has been chosen to be part of the International Jury segment because of his contribution to Indian cinema. “I am delighted to be part of the international jury for the 35th edition of the Cairo International Film Festival. I love the theme that they have — positive thinking revolution and freedom,” the 44-year-old said.

This is not the first time Bhandarkar is going to be part of the event. In 2010, a retrospect of his five films, including Chandni Bar, Page 3, Corporate, Traffic Signal and Fashion, was showcased at the prestigious film festival.

Many big names from Hollywood have been associated with the festival, such as Salma Hayek, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis and Bill Murray.
