The announcement was made by the Film Federation of India last week. Now, Roy Kapur Films has released the first trailer of Pan Nalin’s Chhello Show, and it is receiving massive praise from all corners.

The trailer of Chhello Show or Last Film Show was shared with the caption, “The cinema is more than just a place…it is an experience. And #LastFilmShow is a cinematic experience like no other.

Last week, Ayushmann Khurrana also sent his best wishes to the team of Chhello Show, and wrote, “Wishing ‘Chhello Show’ all the very best as India’s entry for the Oscars.”

Directed by Pan Nalin, Chhello Show tells the story of a nine-year-old Samay from Chalala village in Saurashtra, and is set against the backdrop of cinemas in India witnessing a massive transition from celluloid to digital.
