Mumbai, June 28 (IANS) After Bollywood star Aamir Khan, who celebrated 10 years of his production house recently, director-turned-actor Farhan Akhtar is all set to celebrate a decade of his directorial venture 'Dil Chahta Hai' with a special screening July 24 - the date the film was released in 2001.

Although Aamir threw a bash to mark the event, Farhan has other plans. The 37-year-old intends to take people down memory lane by screening the film in the presence of its cast and crew at Taj Enlighten Film Society's Naya Cinema Festival, which is slated to begin July 15 and go on till July 31.

'Farhan's 'Dil Chahta Hai' was released ten years back on July 24 and we plan to have a screening exactly on the same day. The festival will celebrate directors whose debuts or second films have been path-breaking,' Pranav Ashar, founder member of Taj Enlighten Film Society, said in a statement.

'Among the confirmed names are Aparna Sen's '36 Chowringhee Lane' and Kundan Shah's 'Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron'. The festival will be held at Cinemax, NCPA, Edward Cinema and some other places,' Ashar said.

'Farhan was the first one to become a member of this society. He has always been very supportive. In fact, when we approached him to inaugurate the festival, he immediately agreed. 'Dil Chahta Hai' had received tremendous praise from critics for portraying contemporary Indian youth as cosmopolitan and urban. Apart from the screening, he will have an interactive session with the audience and speak about the making of the film,' he added.

'Dil Chahta Hai' starred Ali Khan">Saif Ali Khan, Akshaye Khanna, Preity Zinta and Sonali Kulkarni apart from Aamir Khan.
