Ace director Goutam Ghose's latest venture 'Raahgir' will have its world premiere at Busan International Film Festival in October.

The film, starring Adil Hussain, Neeraj Kabi and Tillotama Shome, will be screened under "A Window on Asian Cinema" section, the auteur said.

'Raahgir', a tale of empathy during crisis, has been adapted from a short story by Bengali writer Prafulla Roy. A large part of the film has been shot in Jharkhand.

"After the world premiere at Busan, we intend to screen the film at other prestigious festivals across the globe. In India, too, the film will be showcased at a festival and then released for public," he said.

The National Award-winning director asserted that he wanted his film to travel festival circuits before its release in theatres to avoid indiscrimate sharing on the Internet.
