Three years ago, Punjabi singer, actor, and producer, Gippy Grewal invested his resources into the production of an inspirational social drama ‘Ardaas,' a film which was well-received and hailed by critics and audiences alike. Now, the multi-talented star is back with the second installment, 'Ardaas Karaan,' in a cinema space widely known for its romcoms and slapstick humour. The film which explores the pertinent issue of generation gap is slated to hit the theatres today.
‘Ardaas Karaan’ is an upcoming Indian Punjabi-language social drama film co-written, produced and directed by Gippy Grewal.
It is a sequel to ‘Ardaas,' a film which received rave reviews from critics and audiences alike.
In an exclusive interview with SBS Punjabi, Mr Grewal shared that the movie explores the issue of generation gap faced by many families, particularly in Punjabi families who live outside India.
“This is an inspirational movie that aims to celebrate life. No matter what, people can achieve happiness despite their challenging environment,” said Mr Grewal.
“We have been frequently complimented for the previous version of the movie and we sincerely hope to continue the success story with this new storyline.”
Mr Grewal added that the movie narrates the story of three elderly men who have to deal with the changing times and their family conflicts, before achieving what they actually wanted in life – ‘the inner happiness’.
“Our team have put a lot of hard work to make this movie. I sincerely hope that people would like the story, cinematography, music and the skills of our acting team,” he said.
The film also features Gurpreet Ghuggi, Japji Khaira, Babbal Rai, Meher Vij and Yograj in lead roles.
