Acclaimed Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi is in the works of making a film about Indian lives. 'Beyond The Clouds', produced by Zee Studios and Eye Candy Films, is an Indian story based on human relationships, covering nuances for an adorable brother-sister relationship.

Majidi is apparently going all out for his first Indian story, bringing India's best technicians and young artists on board, along with veteran South Indian actress GV Sharada. A spokesperson from Zee Studios and Eye Candy Films said, β€œIt was amazing to see such a seasoned actress have her level of enthusiasm. She went through the entire casting process just like anyone else wanting to do the role would- meetings, screen tests- the works. She was even asked to lose some weight, which she took up and did with so much grace.”

Speaking about the role, Sharada said, β€œI am so glad to be making my comeback after 15 years for a director who I consider as a cinematic God, Majid Majidi and, for a story as beautiful as 'Beyond The Clouds'. I am extremely thrilled and look forward to work with such a phenomenal team- both artists and technicians and the wonderful team at Zee Studios and Eye Candy Films.”
