Director Pan Nalin’s ‘all-girl Indian buddy movie’ Angry Indian Goddesses, has won first runner-up at the 40th Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) which concluded in Toronto, on Sunday.

The movie, about a group of friends, stars Tannishtha Chatterjee, Sandhya Mridul, Sarah Jane Dias, Anushka Manchanda, Amrit Maghera, Rajashri Deshpande and Pavleen Gujral. It provides an insight into the lives of urban Indian women in the midst of sexual assaults.
