Prime Video has announced the digital premiere of the Punjabi family drama, Bajre Da Sitta, starring Ammy Virk, Tania and Noor Chahal.
Directed by Jass Grewal, the movie is set in pre-millennial Punjab and follows the lives of two sisters, Roop (Tania) and Basant (Noor Chahal). Both are gifted singers who get an opportunity to sing for a music company, however, the patriarchal norms pose a huge hurdle for their musical aspiration.
Speaking about the movie, Jass says, “I do have a certain attachment with Punjabi culture. We have a very rich culture and if we look at culture as inheritance, it is associated with the past, with history. If we examine our culture, we will need to go into the past and I am one such person. I like listening to stories and recollections about older times. I try to bring forth the times that have gone by. This becomes doubly entertaining as while the story carries on, people also relate to the film.”
