The upcoming edition of South Asian Film Festival (SAFF) in Goa will pay tribute to legendary Bollywood actor Shammi Kapoor, who passed away recently in Mumbai.

SAFF Secretary General Rahul Barua told reporters today that the festival will hold a special screening of the actor's hit film 'Brahmachari'.

The three-day-long event, which is annually held in Goa, is scheduled from September 15-18.

The organisers have also planned to screen Shammi Kapoor's film Kashmir Ki Kali (1964), Barua said adding that around 50 films from South Asian nations would be screened during the festival.

There will be a separate segment for the films from Bhutan, he added.

"Bhutan is the Focus Country of SAFF-2011," Barua said adding that Bhutanese Film Industry and members of the Motion Pictures Association of Bhutan (MPAB) will represent its industry during the event.

The festival organisers claimed that veteran film personalities like Subhash Ghai, Randhir Kapoor, Mahesh Bhatt and Sharmila Tagore would also be conducting workshops on various aspects of film making like script writing, direction, and others.
