Punjab has witnessed ups and downs throughout its history. From a glorious past filled with rich cultural
heritage to a present mired with drugs and youth going astray, Punjab and its people have seen it all.
But just like the history of every nation and place, this one is waiting for its awakening too. And this
responsibility is effectively taken up by the cinema of the region. One film that is ready to wage this war
of change is the upcoming movie, Rang Panjab.
The film stars Deep Sidhu and Reena Rai in the leading roles. It also stars Kartar Cheema, Ashish Duggal,
Hobby Dhaliwal, Mahavir Bhullar, Jagjeet Sandhu, Dheeraj Kumar, Baninderjit Bunny, Gurjeet Singh,
Jagjeet Singh Bajwa, Kamal Virk, Karan Battan, etc. The dialogues of Rang Panjab are written by
Amardeep Singh Gill and music is given by Gurmeet Singh, Gurmoh and Music Empire. It is directed by
Rakesh Mehta and produced by Mandeep Singh Sidhu and Raj Kundra. This film is a presentation of
Bathinde Wali Bai Films.
Deep Sidhu, playing the lead role of a cop, said, “I represent the good in a war of good and evil in Rang
Panjab. The story traces my character’s journey who is trying to stand against the bad things he is seeing
happening around him: the politics, administration problems, drugs, crime etc. This film has been a
cathartic experience because we all talk about these things, read them in headlines. This is my little way
to create awareness about them. I have undergone quite a physical transformation too. I hope people
will connect to the emotions of this soldier on a war to bring a change and protect his motherland.”
Reena Rai, the leading lady, said, “Rang Panjab is the perfect debut film I could have asked for. I had
always wanted to begin my journey from some meaningful film. Being the part of this project has been
learning and an eye-opening experience. Deep Sidhu is a very talented actor and I have learnt a lot from
him too. This film has all the things a viewer can ask for. I really hope this film gets its due love because
we have made an honest effort.”
Director of Rang Panjab, Rakesh Mehta told, “This film is our way of sharing our responsibility towards
Punjab. We are storytellers and if we can use our medium as a platform to make people aware and bring
a change, it’s like we have made the best use of all the resources we have got. This film is a complete
package: action, drama, romance with a strong and relevant message. We really hope that we are able
to convey that the youth is actually waging a war against all the evils that are eating the glory of our
Punjab like termites. My team is really looking forward to see the kind of response our film will receive.”
“We have touted this film as the “Battle of a Soldier”. We always want to make films that have some
social message because we want people to take back something to think about after watching it. Rang
Panjab has a very positive message with all the masala our viewers love to watch. We promise to keep
investing on such stories that will make a difference in the lives of people who will watch them”, said
Mandeep Singh Sidhu, the producer of Rang Panjab.
Raj Kundra, the producer, said, “Cinema reflects society like no other medium. That’s why it becomes
important to use the silver screen to send out a message. I have always invested in the stories that have
the potential to go beyond the theatres, to your home and be a topic of discussion. Several films have
highlighted the issues of Punjab but Rang Panjab brings in a messiah. More so, it shows that the change
is within us and it begins from the faith that we are the system and we have the power to change it. I am
sure that people will be influenced by this story of a young man.”
The film is set to release on 23rd November 2018. It is distributed worldwide by Saga Music.
