Nimmi to Introduce "Akasa Kusum" at London Asian Film Festival

Nimmi Harasgama is set to introduce a screening of "Akasa Kusum" at the 12th London Asian Film Festival in March 2010. Malini Fonseka will also attend the festival alongside Harasgama, who will also participate in a Q&A session on the film.

Titled 'Tongues of Fire,' the festival also features screenings of blockbusters like "Chak De India," with Shah Rukh Khan and "Paa," with Abhishek Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan alongside more distinguished projects like director Shyam Benegal's "Well Done Abba" and "Lovesongs," featuring Jaya Bachachan in her first screen role in over a decade.

"Akasa Kusum" screens on Tuesday, 9th March at the Apollo Cinema in Piccadilly. Harasgama, who recently was named by Zee Magazine as one of six up-and-coming Asian actors in England, will give the introductory speech before the screening.

The film is currently being prepped for a Sri Lanka DVD release by director Prasanna Vithanage. The disc was scheduled to arrive in stores in February, but will see a slight delay to March.
