Synopsis | Cast and Crew | Articles | Photos | Videos

Nanak Shah Fakir is a film based on the life and teachings of Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Born in 1469 A.D. Nanak traveled the world to spread the essence of 'Ik Onkar' (there's but One God) as a philosophy and way of life. A philosophy that has survived and risen above the flux of conflict and time, impacting over 50 million followers worldwide and giving birth to 'SIKHISM' as a way of life. ('Sikh' signifies a disciple).

Throughout his life, Guru Nanak shared his blessings of divine knowledge through mystic and soulfully divine music. He sang to the Lord and taught us, ordinary mortals, the virtues of peace, love and harmony. Guru Nanak was referred to as 'Shah' by the Muslims and 'Fakir' by the Hindus, the highest honor given in both religions and hence came to be known as 'Nanak Shah Fakir'

It is pertinent to mention here that keeping in line with the tradition, Guru Nanak has been portrayed through COMPUTER GRAPHICS only and that too from the back, amidst a ray of light.

Irfan Khan's Punjabi movie "Qissa" releases tomorrow in India

Cine Punjab News Network
February 19, 2015

After winning accolades at various International Film Festivals, Punjabi film Qissa will see an Indian release tomorrow (February 20). Presented by National Film Development Corporation (NFDC), Qissa will release on multiple platforms such as select Indian theatres, DVDs and Video on Demand (VoD). 

Directed by Anup Singh, Qissa is a co-production between India, German, France and Netherlands, and has won several awards over its festive release that lasted from 2013-2014. 

About the movie
The first film to shoot under the Indian-German co-production treaty, Qissa is an international co-production between India, Germany, Netherlands and France. The Punjabi-language film, presented by Germany's Heimatfilm and the National Film Development Corporation (India), is co-produced by Heimatfilm with Dutch production house Augustus Film, France’s Cine-Sud and the NFDC. Having successfully released in Germany on 10th of July 2014 in 20 screens and France on 3rd of September 2014 in 13 screens, the film not only garnered rave reviews but was also hailed as the second best film to be released in France according to the French press.

Set amidst the ethnic cleansing and general chaos that accompanied India’s partition in 1947, this sweeping drama tells the story of Umber Singh, a Sikh played by Irrfan Khan. Uprooted by the religious violence that came with partition in 1947, Umber and his family move to a safer locale, attempting to forge a new life for his family while keeping their true identities a secret from their community by bringing up his fourth daughter as a son. As Umber's daughter is raised as a boy, the characters are propelled with greater and greater urgency towards their inevitable fates. And when Kanwar Singh is married to a girl, Neeli, this gives birth to even more complications.

Ayushmann Khurrana to be seen in a Punjabi film?

Bollywood actor/singer/TV presentor/ Ex-Radio Jockey Ayushmann Khurrana

January 25, 2015

In a recent media interaction, TV personality turned Bollywood actor-singer said he is ready to do a Punjabi film provided the script is novel and out-of-the-box.

"I am open to Punjabi films. That's because it's my language. And if there is a novel idea, out of the box concept, I will be open to it. It's easier to act in the language you are thinking," he told here, ahead of January 30 release of 'Hawaizaada', in which he plays the lead role.

Ayushmann, who started off as a radio jockey and later became television presenter before making his Bollywood debut in 'Vicky Donor' in 2012, said he is quite fearless as his expectations from life are minimal.

The actor, who has done masters in mass communication from Punjab University, admitted that the initial idea was to become a journalist.

"We had various fields during our course but main thrust was print. I had interest in theatre and radio."

Ayushmann, who has acted in films 'Nautanki Saala' and 'Bewakafiyaan', said he is getting out of his comfort zone for the first time with 'Hawaizaada'.

"'Hawaizaada' is an untold story of an unsung hero... the man who made the world's first aircraft... apparently an Indian and he made the invention eight years before the Wright Brothers. This is a very novel, untold story. It's a very unique idea. I am sure everyone will like it," he said.
