Mumbai, Aug 27 (ANI): Premiere of Bollywood flick, ‘Kisaan’, a film dedicated to the country’s farmers, took place here last evening.
While speaking to the media, the director of the film Puneet Israar appealed to the media for its support so that the film does well at box office.
“I am hoping that the film does well. It’s a film that needs a platform and I hope that with the support of the media, we get that platform,” said Israar.
‘Kisaan’, a joint effort of Sohail Khan and UTV Spot Boys Productions, set in the Punjab heartland deals with how successive generations of farmers have farmed, toilled, bled and perspired for their precious land and how conflicts between the members of the family split the social fabric.
As a treat for the music lovers, the film also has one of the most popular patriotic songs of Bollywood from the 1967 movie of Manoj Kumar, ‘Upkaar’, ‘Mere Desh Ki Dharti’, that has been remixed with a modern day club beat.
Sohail Khan, director and actor of the movie said that he enjoyed making the film.
“The film is primarily a Hindi film, but we have tried our best to come closer to the Punjabi dialect. We chose the actual locations. The costumes were almost similar to what the actual farmers and villagers wear. So I enjoyed making the film,” said Sohail.
The star cast includes Arbaaz Khan, Jackie Shroff, Diya Mirza, Nauheed Cyrus, Dalip Tahil, and Sarfaraz Khan.
Kisaan is slated to hit the theatres tomorrow. (ANI)
