Moga, April 26

Three Moga youths are all set to make their presence felt in Bollywood with a Hindi film on women empowerment.
The trio, Param Gill, dental surgeon and Hollywood filmmaker; Harinder Singh Bobby, also a dental surgeon in Mumbai; and Bollywood film star Sonu Sood, have named the film "Warrior Savitri". It is all set for release around Diwali.
Britain's successful model Lucy Pinder will make her debut in Bollywood through this film. Param Gill is directing the film, while Bobby and Upendra Maheshwari are the producers. Param won the best director's award for his Hollywood movie "Last Supper" at the San Francisco Global Movie Festival in August last year. He started his film career in the US with "Rockin Meera" in 2009, which was screened at several film festivals and was acclaimed for its huge canvas.
He followed it up with thriller "Hotel Hollywood", which recovered its budget on the first day of its release. The "Last Supper" was his third film in Hollywood. There are many more films to his credit. "Warrior Savitri", as the name suggests, is a women-oriented action movie and Lucy seems to have already learnt a lot on Indian culture during the shooting held in Mumbai and Jaipur last month.
Talking to The Tribune during a recent visit to Moga, Param Gill and Bobby said, "Warrior Savitri has an enviable cast from Hollywood, including supermodel from the United Kingdom Lucy Pinder. Tim Man, a martial art expert in Hollywood who worked in movies with Jacky Chan, will play a Buddhist monk while Ron Schoenberg will be the main villain."
A part of the film had been shot in Mumbai and Jaipur, while the remaining movie would be shot in Las Vegas (US), they said.
"Warror Savitri" showcases breath-taking martial art stunts never performed by Bollywood actresses. The main protagonist, Savitri, is being played by Niharica Raizada, granddaughter of seasonal musician OP Nayar. She is a black belt in martial arts.
Satyavan's character is being played by Rajat Barmecha of “Udaan” fame who recently won the national award for his role in this film.
Sonu Sood is guiding his friends (once his class fellows) at every level.
"Sonu is deeply involved in our film," Bobby said. Gill said the movie, having wonderful music, was scheduled to be released around the festival of lights.
"Our motive is to encourage half a billion women of India to take up martial arts for self-defence. The movie rides on this message through ancient fable of Savitri and Satyavan told in the modern world," Param and Bobby said.
Before leaving for London for a short break on way to Las Vegas, Lucy Pinder told The Tribune on the phone, "I am so happy making a debut in a Hindi film in India. I am working with an amazing group of young professionals who have prepared an exciting script. I am sure this movie will be a hit."
The supermodel has featured in magazines such as Loaded, FHM, Maxim, Front, America Curves, ZOO, Ice, Carnoisseur, Redline, Fast Car among others. She also finds her name in FHM's list of the "100 Sexiest Women in The World".
Lucy Pinder has made numerous TV appearances in shows such as "Dream Team", "I'm Famous and Frightened!", "Soccer AM", "Weakest Link", "The Real Hustle", "Bo Selecta", "Living la Vida Loca", "Celebrity Big Brother" and many more.
