During the post-pandemic era, if there’s one director in Punjabi cinema who’s been doling out one blockbuster after another then the name that first comes to mind is of the superbly talented — Amarjit Singh Saron — the man behind terrific hits like ‘Hosla Rakh’ , ‘Saunkan Saunkne’, ‘Babe Bhangra Paunde Ne’ and more!
Now, this highly prolific filmmaker is all set to helm another big-budget Punjabi movie starring none other than superstar singer-actor Ammy Virk. Titled ‘Jugni 1907’, the film is written by Jass Grewal and going to be a period drama based on true historic events. Popular actor Karamjit Anmol will also feature in the movie.
According to Amarjit, Jugni 1907’s production values and treatment are going to be in line with “global standards, and may set a new benchmark in Punjabi cinema — pushing its boundaries to a whole new level.”
As far as the release date is concerned, the makers have announced that Jugni 1907 shall be released on 10th May 2024.
While announcing the film, director Amarjit Singh Saron also said, “It’s both a privilege and a challenge to work on a film based on historic events. So, I am really excited about Jugni 1907. I hope that through this film, we shall be able to provide our Punjabi cinema lovers with a really special and unforgettable cinematic experience.”
It may be recalled that Thind Motion Pictures and Panj Paani Films, are both leading production houses in Punjab. While Panj Paani Films have given us blockbuster hits like Sufna, Thind Motion Pictures has been behind films like Hosla Rakh and Babe Bhangra Paunde Ne.
Director Amarjit Singh Saron has also given hits like ‘Jhalle’ and ‘Kala Shah Kala’ starring Binnu Dhillon.
