Randeep Hooda, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer is slated to release on May 20.

As a biopic based on an Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh, who died in Pakistan, is set to release, the question remains whether or not it will face backlash from the country.

Whatever the case may be, Sarbjit director Omung Kumar seems to be fearless.

Upholding the film does not show Pakistan in a bad light, Kumar said, “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.


Slow and steady wins the race

The upcoming film starring Randeep Hooda and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in lead roles, revolves around the struggles of Sarabjit Singh and his family. It also highlights the efforts of his sister, Dalbir Kaur, to seek justice.

Faisal | 8 years ago | Reply We can't even blame indian hypocrite directors, they are running short of stories. Feeling pity for them.
hoshiar singh gill | 8 years ago | Reply Sarabjit Singh was a spy working for the Indian Intelligence Agencies who caused deaths of many innocent Pakistanis. This has been known for a long time. It is blatant hypocracy to portray him as a hero and accuse Pakistan of "stabbing in the back". These film makers and actors have no shame. People watching this film who are not aware of the actual facts will be totally misled ! Very Sad !
