TV heartthrob Karanvir Bohra is set to produce and star in a period bilingual short film IJAZAT, the movie is a fictional love account inspired from the love affair of former India's Prime Minister, late Rajiv Gandhi and wife Sonia.


Urging that his attempt should not be taken as a ploy to gain eyeballs and create a sensation, the television heartthrob says, “It's a tribute to Sonia and Rajiv ji's love story, but it's a fiction, neither it has any political agenda now any practice to gather eye balls. I am an actor & my job is to act but sometime you come across an idea and you don't want to wait someone to back it. This is one such product, may be few years back when digital platform were not that's effective it would be difficult to take such step but now thanks to the growing reach on digital it is easy to showcase one's creativity so I took this step. I've always been fascinated with classic love stories of the 50s and the 60s.....they don't write such stories or make such movies anymore.”

Speaking further, Karanvir shares the experience on how he got the inspiration to do such a story, he says, “I was browsing through the net and happened to see Rendezvous with Simi Garewal with late Mr. Rajiv Gandhi ji....I was so mesmerized by the way he spoke and the way he carried himself with such elegance....the way he would speak about Sonia Gandhi ji”.

Explaining that his short film IJAZAT will be the Eric Segal love story of India, the bilingual in English and Italian will end at a given point and won't trace the life of Rajiv Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi in India.

Priya Banerjee who was last seen in Aishwarya Rai's JAZBAA will be playing the role of Sonia. On speaking with her on the same, the girl says, “It was very sudden & pleasant for me, when Karanvir came and asked me to be part, I could not refuse. It is a beautiful concept.”

Karanvir is so passionate about this love story that he has invested a major chunk of his earnings in this project and has begun the initial process. The actor shared this pic from the shoot and hopes that IJAZAT is able to convey the passion and the message of love as desired.
