The film “Pahuna” was inspired by gut-wrenching videos and skills of children that were injured and maimed in the conflict zone of the ongoing Syrian war.
It is the story of two siblings who get separated from their parents while fleeing to Sikkim in India to escape the Maoist insurgency in Nepal. The film was released in December 2018.
New Delhi (Sputnik): A Priyanka Chopra-produced film, Pahuna, on child victims of war-afflicted disabilities and displacements will be screened for Syrian children, reports Bollywood Bubble.
The film was made by Paakhi A. Tyrewala and is India’s first Sikkimese feature film. It’s a movie based on a story about children caught in the violence.
The screening of the film will take place in Iran, Turkey, Lebanon, and, if circumstances are right, in Syria as well. There will be live translations of the movie in Kurdish and Arabic during screenings to save expensive dubbing costs.
