Filmmaker Ketan Mehta's controversial film 'Rang Rasiya' has been selected to open the Chicago South Asian Film Festival, which is starting Sep 30.

'Rang Rasiya' is the story of artist Raja Ravi Varma's passions, obsessions and his fierce struggle for creative freedom. He hurt the religious sentiments of the people by painting nudes of Indian mythological characters. Later on, his muse Sugandha inspired him to create exquisite paintings based on mythological themes and classic literature.

Nila Madhab Panda's 'I Am Kalam' has been selected as the centrepiece of the film festival, said a statement from the festival.

The movie is a heartwarming story of a 13-year-old slum boy who aspires to be like A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, former president of India.

Amole Gupte's 'Stanley Ka Dabba' will also been screened in the feature films category of the festival which will end Oct 2.

As many as 27 films have been selected across a variety of genres, such as comedy, drama, romance, fantasy, and reality.
