Enhancing the cultural partnership between the two nations, Israeli Ambassador to India Naor Gilon hosted a soiree on Wednesday that brought together distinguished figures from the film industries of both the countries.
The special event witnessed the presence of renowned Israeli actor Tsahi Halevi and Nurit Tinari, Head of the Cultural Relations Division at the Israeli Foreign Ministry. They are in India to spearhead the promotion of an exciting co-production which united the talents of both nations and also to explore new avenues of collaboration.
The event also witnessed the presence of prominent leaders from the film industries of both nations, standing as a powerful testament to the robust relationship and mutual dedication to fostering art and culture.

The Bollywood debut of the Fauda actor Tsahi Halevi marks a momentous milestone in the growing cultural ties between our two ancient civilizations,” said Ambassador Gilon.
