Gippy Grewal’s first directorial venture – Ardaas, released in March 2016, not only fetched him rave critical reviews but a great success commercially as well. Belonging to a genre that was seldom explored in our industry before, Ardaas, written by Rana Ranbir, managed to create a strong mark on not just the box office but also in the hearts of public.
This film made on pertinent social issues concerning the state of Punjab will now have its sequel- Ardaas 2. Ardaas 2’s shoot shall begin in January and will take place in Canada. It’s interesting to see how the story concerning the issues of Punjabis will be dealt in Canada but perhaps the fact that a large population of Punjabis stay in Canada, will justify the filmmakers’ decision.
We speculate that the film shall talk about the plight of Punjabi immigrants in Canada and the hardships that they grow through in leading a dignified life abroad. It’s a dream of most Punjabis to leave their homeland for Canada but whether their ticket of happiness truly lies there or not, is any issue of debate nevertheless.
More details about Ardaas 2 shall be doled out soon by the makers. At Iampunjaabi.com, we promise to keep you updated with the same.
