[h4]Often reckoned as ‘Mini Punjab’, Canada is seen to be the hub for Punjabis and this April, the team of Manje Bistre 2 has reached there to celebrate our rich culture and heritage. [/h4]
Punjabis are seen to be very active in the North American country, Canada; so much that Canada now has the world’s most Sikh cabinet and Punjabi is the third – most spoken language in that country. So, spearheading the team of Ballewood’s blockbuster movie, Manje Bistre, Gippy Grewal decided to make the sequel of the movie in ‘Mini Punjab.
When asked about his inspiration behind shooting the sequel of Manje Bistre in Canada, Gippy affirmed, “I have often attended Punjabi weddings in Canada and irrespective of the marriage being held in a foreign location, I have seen all the Punjabi rituals being followed in utmost zeal and verve. Guests are seen to be dressed in traditional ethnic attires and every ritual as per the culture is carried out. This is where I got the idea to shoot the sequel to the second part of ‘Manje Bistre’ in Canada.”
While the first part of Manje Bistre made ripples of success in Ballewood, the second part has successfully sustained the hype with just a few days left to the release. Produced & written by Gippy Grewal under the label of Humble Motion Pictures, the movie features Gippy Grewal, Simi Chahal, Gurpreet Ghuggi, Karamjit Anmol, BN Sharma, Sardar Sohi, and Hobby Dhaliwal in pivotal roles.
“Set up in the backdrop of traditional Punjabi wedding, Manje Bistre 2 was shot in Canada and it was a truly enchanting experience. It is not only a comedy movie but it also pays an ode to our rich culture and heritage,” shared Gippy in an exclusive interview to Iampunjaabi.com.
“I clearly remember that when we were shooting the movie, many Canadians got so enticed by the happenings that they stayed back and enjoyed the shoot,” he further reminisces while providing a sneak-peak into the Manje Bistre 2’s shoot in Canada.
Giving Punjab’s rich culture and heritage a ‘global’ touch, the movie is all set to hit to the silver screen on April 12, 2019. It is going to be the first time when Gippy Grewal and Simi Chahal will be seen sharing the screen space. So, this Baisakhi celebrate our culture with the big fat ‘Punjabi’ wedding!
