Amid the controversy over the film ’72 Hoorain’ since its teaser launch, the makers on Sunday announced to hold special screening of the movie at the JNU premises here, on July 4.
Talking about the screening of ’72 Hoorain’ at JNU, the makers of the movie said, ”it presents a significant moment for Kashmiri Muslims and other students to express their thoughts and reactions to a film that delves into the gruesome reality of terrorist camps. Against the backdrop of previous controversies, the event calls for a respectful and open dialogue, fostering a deeper understanding of the facts.”
Earlier, director Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan commented, “The slow poisoning of the mind by perpetrators turns ordinary individuals into suicide bombers. Let us remember that even the bombers themselves, with families like ours, have fallen victim to the twisted beliefs and brainwashing of terrorist leaders. Trapped in a deadly illusion of 72 virgins, they embark on a path of destruction, ultimately meeting a gruesome fate. It is a tragic reminder of the power of manipulation and the urgent need to address the root causes of terrorism.”
Producer Gulab Singh Tanwar shared, “It’s not the job of a faint hearted to back up a project that is so emotionally heavy. 72 Hoorain was just the right way to showcase how in the name of religion, fictional stories were sold to innocent and ordinary people in order to convert them into brutal terrorists. It was high time the truth was told.”
‘72 Hoorain’ stars Pavan Malhotra and Ameer Bashir in the lead, and is all set for a theatrical release on July 7.
