Hema Malini’s Punjabi production gets release date
Titled Mitti - Virasat Babbaran Di, the film is inspired by the story of five Sikh NRIs (of the Babbar Akali movement) who came back to India in 1920 and died fighting the Britishers.
Hema Malini’s debut Punjabi production, Mitti – Virasat Babbaran Di, will release on August 23.. Directed by Hriday Sheetty, Mitti is set in contemporary Punjab and follows five youngsters against the backdrop of terrorism and drug menace that has plagued the state. The film is inspired by the story of five Sikh NRIs (of the Babbar Akali movement) who came back to India in 1920 and died fighting the Britishers.
Mitti stars Rabbi Kandola, Kuljinder Sidhu, Japji Khaira, Jagjeet Sandhu, Nishawn Bhullar, Dheeraj Kumar, Pali Sandhu, and Aakanksha Sareen. The first look poster of the film was unveiled recently.
“I am happy to be associated with the film. The story is not only inspiring but also topical with regards to what is happening in Punjab today,” Hema Malini said.
Director Hriday Shetty added, “The story of mere 5 Sikhs (Babbars) fighting and sacrificing their lives for the country will inspire generations to come. This film is our effort to pay tribute to their courage”.
