NRI Harbhajan Mann & NRI Kimi Varma in "Mera Pind "movie
- Releasing in September


Ludhiana, Aug. 09, 2008
Col. Sudesh Verma

The film is about an NRI who transforms an entire village and transforms their attitude. The entire film is being shot in Punjab. ‘Mera Pind’ is a complete family entertainer with a perfect blend of emotions, drama and comedy. The movie is a joint production of Adlabs and Punj-Aab Movies with Harbhajan Mann in the lead role along with Navjot Singh Sidhu as co-star.

NRI Harbhajan Mann, a popular Punjabi singer and actor has already acted in several Punjabi blockbusters such as Mitti Wajaan Maardi, Asaan Nu Mann Watnaan Da, Jee Aaayaan Nu, Yaaran Naal Baharaan and Dil Apna Punjabi.

Navjot Sidhu, MP, Cricketer, TV anchor, and now actor is playing the role of "NRI" (non-resident Indian), who returns to India for good and settled in a small village of Punjab. He tries to uplift the village folks of Punjab, spreads the message of self-empowerment and entrepreneurship amongst the village youth. Their lives are changed by Sidhu’s simple but extremely enterprising initiatives. Soon, the village transforms into a modern prosperous hamlet and becomes a model village. The film drives an important message targeted at Punjabi audiences to realize the importance of being an entrepreneur in one’s own land rather than showing their extraordinary entrepreneurship in the West where Punjabis are touted to be fairly successful and hardworking, an impression which belies the visible reality back home.

"My life is based on experiments and I have tried my hands at infinite things. But I have no qualms in saying that this experiment of acting was the best one of my life," told Sidhu to media."I am ready to do more Punjabi films in future, but the only condition is that they should portray meaningful and responsible cinema. Films are the best medium to diffuse any social message in the society and have the capacity to bring unexpected positive changes. I believe in becoming master of all trades and jack of none."

It was also said that Navjot was offered a role in Akshay Kumar’s forthcoming release Sing is Kinng, but he turned it down
