Sarbjit

Friday, May 20, 2016 • Hindi Comments

Directed by National award winning director Omung Kumar, 'Sarbjit' stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Randeep Hooda, Richa Chadda and Darshan Kumar. The film is produced jointly by Vashu Bhagnani, Bhushan Kumar, Sandeep Singh and Omung Kumar.

The Story:

Dalbir Kaur (played by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan), is the older sister of Sarabjit Singh (played by Randeep Hooda), a farmer from Bhikhiwind in Punjab (just 5 kms away from the Indo-Pakistan border), who in 1990 while farming, inadvertently, crossed over to Pakistan after having a couple of drinks, got mistaken as an Indian spy and was given capital punishment in 1991 but was not hanged. He was kept in the Kot Lakhpat jail in Lahore for 23 years, before he was killed by inmates.

During his 23 years in jail, his sister Dalbir Kaur, who treated him more like her son than her brother, got to meet him only thrice in jail and made it her life's agenda to get him released. While she finally did not succeed in getting him released, she is determined to reach his real story to the world through a film titled 'Sarbjit' being made based on his life.

The story of Dalbir and her family's battle and finally defeat for not being able to bring her brother back alive is not just touching but heartbreaking.

'Sarbjit' is expected to release middle of this year.
