Pal later discovered that the kids were fans of popular Indian actor Rajnikanth, who played the role of a computer engineer in one of his blockbuster action films.
A year later, Pal read about a sweet shop owner in the southern state of Tamil Nadu who planned to climb more than a thousand stairs on his knees to pray for the success of a new movie starring Rajnikanth, who only uses one name.
The documentary, "For The Love of a Man," produced by Pal and directed by Kalsy, will premiere at the Venice Film Festival in September. There are more than 150,000 fan clubs dedicated to Rajanikanth, and they span the globe from rural Tamil Nadu villages to cities in Japan.
Along the way, they found ordinary men who sold their homes to fund fan clubs, held prayer meetings for the success of the actor's films, and even looked for wives based on whether they were Rajnikanth fans or not. Among the fans featured in the documentary is a peanut seller—Mani, a former gangster and a small-time local politician. The documentary won some early awards in India when Pal and Kalsy screened some portions for funding.
After all the hard work, Pal said a world premiere at the Venice Film Festival feels great.
The five-day annual event, which attracts a large number of serious film buffs from and outside the state, is organised by Kerala State Chalachitra Academy.
An academy release here today said entries are invited to both Competition and Focus (Out of Competition) sections.
The entries can be sent in the categories of Long Documentary (above 40 minutes), Short Documentary (below 40 minutes), Short Fiction (below 40 minutes), Music Video, Animation and Campus Film, it said.

Nirbhaya's parents have spoken extensively in this documentary, which exposes the disgraceful attitude of the rapists and those who surround them. The director has obtained all legal clearances needed from the authorities (please scroll below for copies of clearances that were granted). This is a film that fights for and remembers Nirbhaya - and it honours the wishes of her parents who have seen the film.

Pal's belief in the film goes beyond time and research—he has invested his life's savings in the film that follows the fans of Rajnikanth, who has been in more than 200 movies. His life is a true rags-to-riches story—he rose from bus conductor to India's top-earning film star. For the past four-and-a-half years, Pal and his team have tracked the lives of some of these fans. It is a look at the lives of real people to explore why they do what they do," said Pal, the primary researcher for the film. In fact, on one of his first dates with his wife, the couple attended the opening of a Rajnikanth film.
In addition, Pal raised about $7,000 on the Indian crowdsourcing website Wishberry last year—funds that helped him finish the film editing. International films will be divided in the categories of documentary, short, animation, debut film and student film; while films from India will fall under the queer section, global warming, social message , Marathi film (competition) and special screening (feature film).

Sangita Datta (Director) and the project is financed by Sahitya Academy [India’s National Academy of Letters], New Delhi.
The Government of India Resolution, which set forth the constitution of the Akademi, described it as a national organisation to work actively for the development of Indian letters and to set high literary standards, to foster and co-ordinate literary activities in all the Indian languages and to promote through them all the cultural unity of the country. A worldwide 'India's Daughter' campaign against sexual violence and gender inequality will also be launched on Monday in New York by Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Freida Pinto and others.
During some of his most successful years, he was the highest paid actor in Asia after Jackie Chan. Being one of the team members and the interviewer of the film I had a great opportunity of going through the literary works of the writers.
In India too, the film launches a campaign to fight for justice for Nirbhaya and to raise awareness to end sexual crimes in our country. Though all their works are in Santali language but they have used four different scripts like Al-chiki, Debnagari, Roman and Bangla.  Mr. It was registered as a society on 7 January 1956, under the Societies Registration Act, 1860. Visiting their place of birth, their old schools, place of work, meeting their close kin and learning about their transition from traditional to modernity is also a unique experience for me. Most of the writers are in their nineties and represent the first generation educated Santals thus their line of thoughts, art of expression, choice of words and experiences are the treasure of Santali literature.
