It was full house. Some 350 Sikhs and invited guests thronged the Central World Cinemas in Bangkok, Thailand, to catch the premiere show for Chaar Sahibzaade, a Sikh historical 3D animation movie.
Movie director Harry Baweja was himself present at the Nov 2 event.
“In the last one and a half years, I have been doing nothing but sitting in the studios day and night,” said Harry in one interview in Bangkok during the screening. Initially, he thought he could do a once-a-week visit to the studio.
Chaar Sahibzaade revolves around the lives and martyrdom of the four sons (Sahibzaade) of Guru Gobind Singh – Sahibzaada Ajit Singh, Sahibzaada Jujhar Singh, Sahibzaada Zorawar Singh and Sahibzaada Fateh Singh.
“I want everyone to watch how the chote sahibzaades stood by their principals and how they didn’t move or blink an eye,” he said when asked about one key message from the movie.
