Sartaj Singh Pannu's SOCH LO, is winning more admirers than he would have imagined, when he first made the film. The latest one is the Honorable Mayor of Milpitas in California, US. Mayor Esteves was one of the attendees at the Global Music Video Launch of SOCH LO, organized by Paul Bhathal of Kesar Entertainment. This event was held at the Heritage of India restaurant in Milpitas, CA, on December 18, 2010.
MAYOR ESTEVES with BARKHA MADAN
Barkha Madan, the lead actress of SOCH LO, who was in attendance, was bestowed the Key To The City of Milpitas, by the Mayor, during the event. This was a watershed event, not only for Barkha Madan, but for the entire team of SOCH LO and also the entire independent film movement of Bollywood, since very select Indian film and television personalities, have been presented a Key of an American city.
This is a symbolic gesture, bestowed on personalities who are made honorary residents of a city because of what they stand for and symbolize. Barkha Madan was symbolic of the battle against odds that SOCH LO has faced, and come out on top.
Barkha and SOCH LO, now head to London, UK, for the official DVD release party of the film, on January 31, 2011.
