Mumbai: Producer Sunil Doshi is bringing 'The Salesman,' the Oscar winning Asghar Farhadi film via his new initiative ‘Sunil Doshi Presents’. 

The Iranian director who has a strong connect with India says, "I have been to India several times. I have also come for the Mumbai Film Festival. What I found really striking in India is the passion of the young cinema lovers. They pursue cinema in a very serious way. They are very passionate and I am very hopeful about the future of Indian cinema."

He further mentions that, "I receive many messages, letters and emails from Indian cinema lovers. This is something I find very comforting. I see that their insight and relationship to cinema is still very important and very vivid."

Asghar won his second Oscar in the Foreign film category, this year at the 89th Academy Awards.

‘The Salesman’ is set to release in India on March 31.
