The idea is to leave audiences reeling with a wholesome and memorable experience every single time! About My Father is one such film that is sure to make our audiences hearty and happy. In fact, interestingly, Robert De Niro himself is extremely selective about the projects he chooses to associate with. So we are excited to see him raise the benchmark yet again with this film. Lionsgate has been ruling the roost in terms of their content and entertainment value. They take our audience base a notch higher with each instalment they release. With this movie, we are looking forward to cementing our association deeper and stronger.”
