Globally celebrated filmmaker Shekhar Kapur was all praise for south Indian cinema on Wednesday, when he said even commercial movies in these parts come with a touch of reality. "But films are so generic in Mumbai," he said.

The event saw a large turn out of celebrities, film institute students, critics and movie buffs. There are 133 international films from 53 countries that are being screened between December 14 and 22.
