Created and directed by Lom Harsh, Yeh Hai India celebrates India’s vast cultural heritage and tries to capture the rich diversity of our nation.

Commenting on the official selection, Lom Harsh said, “We are extremely proud to win an official selection at the prestigious FOG Film Festival. Also, now our India release date is just after Independence Day. We hope that the whole country will be proud of this movie as we are.”

The movie was also screened at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival and made India proud there.

The movie stars Gavie Chahal, Deana Uppal, Mohan Agashe and Mohan Joshi in the lead roles. Yeh Hai India is the story of a 26-year-old NRI who comes to India with stereotypical views about the country and how his perception changes. The movie follows the journey of what it takes to be an Indian and the idea of India from past to present.

Producer Sandeep Choudhary said, “The world premiere of the movie is happening on August 11 followed by an India release. We are confident the movie will win hearts overseas as well as in India.”

Gavie Chahal, the star of the movie, said, “It has been a great journey to be associated with Yeh Hai India. I have got to play a demanding role that only helped me push my envelope as an actor but made me a better human and a better citizen.”

The film has been produced under the banner of DLB Films Pvt Ltd.
