Veteran actress Soni Razdan lends her support to No Fathers In Kashmir and appeals to Censor Board stating that truth and integrity should be given a chance.
“No Fathers In Kashmir” is helmed by Oscar-nominated director Ashvin Kumar and has been stuck from quite some time and has been awaiting approval of CBFC. The film had been earlier denied a U certification by CBFC after which it moved to FCAT to appeal against the A certificate.
Soni Razdan took to her social media profile and urged the censor board. She wrote, “Ashvin @ashvinkumar knows Kashmir so well. That’s the first thing I thought when I read this script. And that’s exactly why I so wanted to be a part of this project. For once I felt that here is a film that doesn’t pretend…doesn’t mislead…and most importantly doesn’t lie”
“But everyone is real and human and so we feel that finally we are perhaps getting to know this wonderful place called Kashmir just a little bit better. Whoever sits on this board I do implore you to give truth and integrity a chance @prasoonjoshi_ @PritishNandy @ashvinkumar”
“It does so gently, with a lot of ironies, with tongue in cheek humour and a wonderful story full of courageous, innocent and sometimes foolish characters. No one is demonised. @prasoonjoshi_ @PritishNandy @ashvinkumar @ShashiTharoor @MaheshNBhatt”
The film chronicles the tale of a teenage British Kashmiri, Noor, retraces her roots in search of her father with Majid, a local Kashmiri boy. These playful eyes of love-struck teenagers, in their search, uncover the hidden secrets of the lost fathers of Kashmir.
The film is written and directed by Ashvin Kumar, starring Kulbhushan Kharbanda and Soni Razdan in leading roles.
