The multimillion dollar Sundance deals for Indian-origin women filmmakers

Updated : April 28, 2019 09:06 AM IST

Gurinder Chadha’s 'Blinded by the Light' went for a whopping $15 million to Warner Brothers’ New Line Films. The next biggest sale at Sundance was Mindy Kaling and Nisha Ganatra’s 'Late Night' which sold also for a chunky figure—$ 13 million to Amazon.
'Blinded by the Light' is based on 'Greetings from Bury Park', a memoir by journalist Sarfraz Manzoor on his growing up years in Luton, England as an immigrant from Pakistan.
'Late Night' revolves around a legendary powerful female late night talk show host played by Emma Thompson whose show is about to be canceled due to falling ratings unless she changes things around quickly.
