National Award-winning filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar, who is
currently in South Korea for the premiere of his short film "Mumbai Mist" at the
Busan International Film Festival, was surprised to see firecrackers being sold
in local markets there for Diwali.
Bhandarkar took to Twitter on Sunday to share a video in which locals in Busan can be seen buying firecrackers.
"Wow! Surprised to see firecrackers being sold for Diwali at local market in Busan, South Korea. Incredible India," Bhandarkar wrote alongside the video.
Featuring Annu Kapoor, "Mumbai Mist" is a part of "Where Has Time Gone", an anthology feature film showing five segments directed by five directors from Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. It explores the theme of time and love through their own perspective.
The film was premiered at the film festival on Saturday.
