amazingly. This is something our film makers should adapt. And also government should promote these films. I
have enjoyed a lot while watching this film. Lastly, I will say everyone should go with their family and enjoy this
“This film has always been about connecting with the audiences instead of just a money-making project. We want
to spread the message this film wants to convey far and wide. And who would be a better choice than the young
generation. That’s why we took the kids from Prabh Aasra for this special screening. Now, we would also like to use
this opportunity to announce that we have made it free to be shown at the orphanages and old age homes across
Punjab. We want Punjab’s rich heritage to be safeguarded and if the film is able to create this awareness, we will
consider our efforts successful “, Charanjit Singh Walia and Tegbir Singh Walia from Teg Productions quoted.
