In an attempt to get a new series of Julie Toy Stories films on the big screen, India’s Ministry of Cinema, Culture, Information Technology and Tourism (MCIT) has ordered a screening of the first two films in the series.
The Ministry’s spokesperson, Rajiv Seth, told The Times Of India that the film will be released on March 18.
“The films are based on the life of a young girl named Julie Toy and her adventures as she moves from one family to another.
She becomes the star of the family, her friends, and the entire neighbourhood,” he said.
The films, released in 2015 and 2016, respectively, follow the life and career of a 14-year-old girl named “Julie” and a 12-year old boy named “Pumpkin”.
The films were based on a book by author Anand Jha.
“Julia is a character who is extremely special and very popular.
It is the same story of her life that has been told in books and movies,” Seth said.
He said that the ministry is looking forward to the screenings.
“We are happy that the films have been chosen for screening and we are confident that the public will enjoy the films.
The ministry is committed to giving young people opportunities to discover new and inspiring stories,” he added.
“This is the most important thing for the young generation.”
The ministry has asked the film distributors to release all of the titles in cinemas by March 24, 2018.
The titles include “Juliet”, “July”, “Little Julie”, “A Girl in Love”, “Lola” and “Little Girl”, Seth added.
The screenings will take place at all cinema halls and at least 100 theaters nationwide.
The film’s director, Ashok Pandey, is also the director of the children’s television series, Joy, which he started in 2004.
The series has a cast of more than 30,000 children.
