A Punjabi boy falls for a Haryanvi girl. They want to get married only to be told by ‘pandit’ that the boy’s bad luck will end only if he marries a dog before marrying the girl of his dreams. This is the premise of the upcoming Punjabi film Vekh Baraatan Challiyan. The entire star cast was in the city to promote the film. They said it will create history.
The lead character, Binnu Dhillon, said, “The film is on two different families — one from Punjab and the other from Haryana. Jatt family is from Punjab and the Jaat family is from Haryana. The film is based on few religious and traditional ethics. The main character, bus conductor, falls in love with a frequent traveller — Sarla, who is from Haryana. When both of them decide to get married, something drastic happens.” The film highlights the conflict between religious beliefs and young couples’ dilemma to deal with the fact that the boy has to marry a dog.
The female lead is played by actor Kavita Kaushik. The other artistes and actors include Jaswinder Bhalla, Karamjit Anmol, Gobind Namdev, Mukesh Bhatt and Mithila Purohit. Amrinder Gill and Ranjit Bawa will be seen in special appearances. The film has been directed by Kshitij Chaudhary. And the producers are Jaspal Sandhu, Amiek Virk and Karaj Gill.
