Shahrukh Bola Khoobsorat Hain Tu, a Hindi movie directed by theatre veteran Makrand Deshpande will be premiered during IFFI in Goa to be held from November 23 to December 3.
"The film is about a poor girl who sells flowers at a traffic signal and how her life changes after a chance encounter with King Khan, who rolls down the window of his car and tells her, Tu Khoobsurat Hai," said Deshpande.
