Jimmy Sheirgill is highly elated. His Punjabi film TERA MERA KI RISHTA is all set to release next Friday. What's more, this Navnait Singh directed film is said to be the costliest Punjabi film made till date. Shot extensively in Punjab and Switzerland (where no Punjabi film has been shot till date), TERA MERA KI RISHTA is presented by EROS which further ensures that the film will gain a wide international release.
''Yes, this is a big budget Punjabi film'', reaffirms Jimmy Sheirgill who comes straight after the success of A WEDNESDAY, a film totally in contrast of TERA MERA KYA RISHTA which is a feel good affair, ''The intent was not to make a safe film by spending less but instead come up with something that increments the standard of Punjabi films while keeping Punjabi audience in mind.''
''Time and again, we hear people end up saying that 'arrey, this is a regional movie so let's skip it and rather watch a core Bollywood film'. However, this time around the team of TERA MERA KI RISHTA took a resolve that we would beat the issue/belief around regional flicks'', says Jimmy in an enthusiastic tone.
''I guess market is not fully tapped for Punjabi films. Audiences should watch Hindi films but Punjabis especially should not be ignoring Punjabi films. They should give it a priority and going by the response that the film has generated prior to its release, I can already see a HIT in the making'', says another prominent cast member of the film.
Starring Kulraj Randhawa in the lead (who was seen in popular TV serial KAREENA KAREENA a few years back, TERA MERA KI RISHTA also boasts of Raj Babbar, Anupam Kher, Gurpreet Ghuggi and Archana Puran Singh in supporting roles. The film is all set for a 10th April release.
