Anurag Kashyap's That Girl in Yellow Boots has been selected to screen at the 35th Toronto International Film Festival, which starts this week.

The offbeat movie was co-written by Dev D actor Kalki, who also plays the lead role.

Speaking to IANS, festival co-director Cameron Bailey commented: "That Girl in Yellow Boots is not a musical, not a song-and-dance film at all. It is a very hard-hitting drama about a girl searching for her father in Mumbai."

The project depicts a different side of the city to mainstream Hindi films.

"What Kashyap is trying to do is to punch her through that veneer of sunshine and happiness and give us something real. This film feels like a real picture of the tougher, harder side of life in Mumbai today," Bailey said.

Kalki recently announced that the movie will have a mainstream release after its festival appearance.
