The animation, produced by Baweja Movies Pvt. Ltd. Production, will be shown at 3pm at Central World Cinemas in Bangkok, courtesy of a group of Thai Sikh sponsors and with the support of the Gurdwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Bangkok.
The event on Sunday is expected to be attended by some local personalities and the media, according to information shared by promoters of the Bangkok premiere showing.
Chaar Sahibzaade revolves around the lives and martyrdom of the four sons (Sahibzaade) of Guru Gobind Singh Ji – Sahibzaada Ajit Singh, Sahibzaada Jujhar Singh, Sahibzaada Zorawar Singh and Sahibzaada Fateh Singh. The film is set to release worldwide by Nov 6, in many languages including Punjabi, Hindi and English.
“Living in Thailand, I saw this [animation movie] as the perfect chance and way to let the entire international and Thai community, especially schools, where our children study, where we live, know about Sikhism, our amazing courageous Sikh heritage and our strong faith, and stance for humanity,” Amarjit Kaur Doowa, a member of the organising team, told AsiaSamachar.
Other organising team members also shared their reasons for getting involved in making the premiere possible.
Dr Rani Phlaphongphanich said her grandson is attached to the Chaar Sahibzaade while Manmohan Singh said his son had been asking when he was going to get his chance to view the film after seeing the trailer over the internet.
“My kids will feel proud of our rich heritage,” shared Arvinder Kaur Chabra, another team member.
It is understood that Bangkok is the only city in Southeast Asia with a premiere show for the Chaar Sahibzaade animation movie.
