A star-studded special screening of "Piku" was held on Tuesday evening at Yashraj Studios in Mumbai. The film will release worldwide on 8 May.

The Shoojit Sircar directorial explores the heart-warming relationship of a Bengali father and his daughter. Padukone plays the title role of "Piku", while Big B is her cranky father.
But unlike the usual father-daughter bond, the Sircar directorial shows "Piku" and her father argue with and complain about each other.
Going by the trailer, it looks like the film revolves around Padukone's love for her quirky-natured father who suffers from constipation. In fact, the tagline of the film says: "Motion Se Hi Emotion."
The film also stars veteran actress Moushumi Chatterjee in a pivotal role.
