Subhash Ghai and team promotes the film - Kaanchi, in Kolkata
enowned film-maker Subhash Ghai toured the city recently, to promote his upcoming film KAANCHI – The Unbreakable, along with his lead pair Kartik (Kartikeya Aaryan Tiwari) and Mishti (Indrani Chakraborty).
It’s a woman centric film that supports women empowerment, where the director claims to have taken the responsibility to spread a message through a powerful story of a discernible girl from the mountains. “One girl’s voice becomes the voice of the nation,” said the veteran director.
Flanked by a couple of fresh faces in his lead pair, this old campaigner from Mumbai addressed the city’s press at Inox, South City, explaining the root of the story and talking about his own image of ‘Kaanchi’.
“We may win or lose, but I wanted to make KAANCHI with a lot of conviction. It lends a voice to the suppressed youth,” added Ghai. Also starring veteran actors like Mithun Chakraborty and Rishi Kapoor, KAANCHI has the look of a concerned film that is dreamy, theatrical, and entertaining at the same time.
The gracious bong girl in Mishti makes her Bollywood debut in this film alongside the charming Kartik, who has featured in a couple of Luv Ranjan’s films like Pyaar ka Punchnama and Akaash Vani.
“I play an important and matured character in KAANCHI as I become a source of inspiration through the course of the film. I followed Subhash ji blindly, and this film completely transformed me as an actor,” said Kartik.
Ismail Darbar and Salim-Sulaiman have composed the songs for this musical love saga.
Will Ghai’s strong musical acumen hold intact an impeccable record of musical chartbusters?
Will KAANCHI mark the comeback of showman Subhash Ghai?
We’ll have to wait and watch. The film releases across theaters on the 25th of April, 2014.
