Director, Vidhu Vinod Chopra is back after a long time with his upcoming film Shikara. The tagline of the film reads, ‘The Untold Story of Kashmiri Pandits’. The story is set in 1990’s when Kashmiri Pandits were forced to move out from Kashmir.
In the trailer we can also see two new faces, Sadia and Aadil Khan who are doing the lead role. Shikara will portray the struggle of Kashmiri Pandits after leaving their home and how theyt start afresh in a refugee camp. The trailer is quite interesting with some striking visuals that are keeping the audience engaged to it.
Talking about Shikara, the filmmaker said, "This is a story about a Kashmiri Pandit couple, some 30 years ago. Their story starts in 1987 when everything was fine. From 1989 till today, it has been that couple’s story. It is the story of their 30 years’ journey and the story of India as well. It took me a lot of time and effort to make this film, and it is the story of all those people who have been refugees in their own country over the last three decades."
Shikara marks the return of Vidhu Vinod Chopra to the direction in India after 13 years. His last directorial feature film was Eklavya: The Royal Guard in 2007. Produced and directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, the music is composed by A.R. Rahman. The film is slated to release on February 7.
