MUMBAI: Film director Manmohan Singh is all set to embark upon his next project with a yet another Punjabi movie Mera Pind-My Home, the production for which will commence soon.
The film is to star cricketer-turned-Member of Parliament Navjot Singh Sidhu in a major role for the first time ever.
Director and cinematographer Singh teams again with Adlabs for this film. “The idea is to take a Punjabi film out of Punjab and market it all over the world. The film has all the ingredients of a commercial film along with a message for the youth and NRIs,” he says.
Reliance Entertainment chief marketing officer Saurabh Varma adds, “We are proud and privileged to work with one of the best filmmakers on this side of the world â€“ Manmohan Singh. This film will be positioned like any other heart warming Bollywood film with absolute focus on marketing, advertising and promotions.”
Navjot Singh Sidhu, the new star in Punjabi Cinema, said that the theme of Mera Pind-My Home is closer to his heart. “While I, being a Punjabi myself can relate to my character in the film more emphatically than anyone else, it will still be a learning experience with a seasoned director like Manmohan ji and my brother Harbhajan Mann with whom I look forward to have a great working experience on the sets.”
Harbhajan Mann, the lead actor of Mera Pind-My Home said that after the success of Mitti Wajaan Maardi, Asaan Nu Mann Watnaan Da, J’ee Aaayaan Nu, Yaaran Naal Baharaan and Dil Apna Punjabi, it has become a way with Manmohan to feel the pulse of Punjabi audiences and Mera Pind-My Home will hopefully live up to that critical parameter.
