As Sarbjit, a biopic on an Indian prisoner Sarbjit Singh who died in Pakistan, is set to release worldwide next month, the question arises whether or not it will face back lash from the country. Whatever, the case may be director Omung Kumar seems to be ready to encounter such a back lash.
Upholding the film does not show Pakistan in a bad light, Kumar said while talking to PTI, “There is nothing as such in the film that will create backlash. We want to release the film worldwide. The idea is to make Indians and Pakistanis and others realise what happens when an incident like this happens.”
“We are not pin-pointing anyone, there is fault in us also… There is some fault in the system as well,” he added.
The biopic portrays the struggle of Sarabjit Singh, played by Randeep Hooda, and his family through his sister Dalbir Kaur’s journey for justice, essayed by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
The film also stars Richa Chadha and Darshan Kumar in lead roles and is set to release on May 20.
