AMRITSAR: Producer Tanvi Sandhu and director Vikram Sandhu today announced their new Punjabi film “Aaja Ve Maahi” targeted at children of Punjabi Diaspora born and brought up in foreign lands. While their parents are well conversant with the Punjabi culture and heritage, most of these children are blissfully ignorant of the Indian ethos.
Addressing a press conference here film director Vikram Sandhu claimed that the film, which for the first time in the history of Punjabi film industry will also simultaneously be released in Pakistan and Europe, will attempt to bind these children to the Punjabi way of life. For the purpose of selling in Europe, “Aaja Ve Maahi” is being dubbed in Spanish and Greek, he added.
While Wadali Brothers will sing the title song of “Aaja Ve Maahi”, music will be composed by the legendary Jaidev. All of them were present at the media briefing. Commenting on the star cast, Vikram Sandhu said apart from Sarvar Ahuja and Micky Sidhu in the lead roles, others already cast in the film are well known actors Ranjit Singh, Dheeraj Kumar and Kanwaljit Singh. Tatiyana from the UK is in the female lead role while hunt was on for others.
The film is being made under the banner of Angel Film Creatiives, which has earlier produced films like “Dil Da Mamla”, “Dil Mera Mod De” and “Jai Jai Veer Goga Peer”. Guri Bal is the partner and distributor worldwide, while the film has been organised by Raj Sandhu and Karan Sandhu.
