Ajai and Avtar’s film on honour killings
Producer Ajai Sinha and director Avtar Bhogal, who are known for TV serials, such as “Ghar Ek Sapna,” “Haasratein” and “Astitva,”, have decided to shift to the silver screen with a controversial and contemporary topic titled “Khap- A Story Of Honour Killing”. The film stars Om Puri, Yuvika Chaudhary, Govind Namdeo, Mohnish Behl and Manoj Pahwa in pivotal roles.
“These killings have taken place even in the capital Delhi also. My film has borrowed from many such incidents and it’s not particularly based on any one incident. It is inspired from all and not one. I visited some places in Haryana where this tradition is still followed. I talked to panchayat members and villagers as a part of my research on the film,” says Sinha.
