The film, which stars Huma, "Downton Abbey" star Hugh Bonneville, Gillian Anderson and late actor Om Puri, has already released in Britain.

"Here is the India poster for ‘Viceroy's House', now called ‘Partition: 1947'," Huma tweeted on Thursday alongside the poster of the film.

The poster of the film features Tanveer Ghani as Jawaharlal Nehru, Denzil Smith as Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Neeraj Kabi as Mahatma Gandhi.

Chadha also shared the poster and wrote: "Just landed in India. So excited to see this! Very cool for a diaspora filmmaker to see how the story of ‘Partition: 1947' is seen globally."

The film will release in India on August 18.
