In keeping with its practice of promoting thought-provoking films with a difference, Shringar is planning to usher in the New Year with its first release AMU (January 7), a film based on the 1984 anti-Sikh riots in Delhi that exploded after Indira Gandhi's assassination. The film is directed by Shonali Bose, who was a student of history at the Miranda House College when the riots took place and now lives in L.A. According to Balkrishna Shroff of Shringar, the film is in keeping with Shringar's tradition of nurturing honest films that make a difference. "There are a good number of audiences who wish to see these films and it is our endeavor to make sure that they get a decent release through a proper chain of theatres," says Shroff. It may be recalled that Shringar had last released the Pakistani film KHAMOSH PANI, which got a fair response among the audiences.
