MUMBAI: Zee Cinema will hold the global premiere of Pyaar Ki Shuruaat, touted to be India’s first two minute love story, on 1 April 2007 at Genting, Malaysia during the tenth Zee Cine Awards.
Pyaar Ki Shuruaat is a complete feature film of two minutes’ duration starring Nitin Nayyar and Gargi Sharma. This movie will subsequently be released on Zee Cinema on 2 April 2007, says a release.
Says Zee Cinema’s business head Bharat Ranga, “Zee Cinema is the pioneer of two minute films in India, having started with the first two minute thriller Paap Ka Anth.”
Adds Ranga, “Our viewer is the quintessential Indian who values love, warmth and friendliness. This short film is our expression of the gratitude we have towards our viewers.”
‘Pyaar Ki Shuruaat’ is an inter-community love story, where the protagonists belong to different faiths. Kabir Singh (Nitin Nayyar) meets Salma (Gargi Sharma) in a boarding school (Khandani Mahavidyalay) far away from their villages and their cultures. Their romance blossoms oblivious of cultural conflicts. He is a Thakur from Ramgarh and she belongs to a Pathan family from Aligarh. Their families have been staunch enemies for generations. As expected, their love meets with stiff opposition from their cultures and families. However Zee Cinema transforms the opposition to love and brings the family and the lovebirds together.
This movie has been produced by Zee Cinema and directed by Rajesh Krishnan of Footcandles, the release adds.
