A new Punjabi film titled Rabba Mainu Maaf Kari has been announced by the model turned actress Bishamber Das. This Punjabi film will mark the acting debut of Bishamber and the shoot has already commenced. It stars Ninja and Bishamber as the lead pair.
Bishamber took to her social media page to share her delight at bagging her first Punjabi film. She quoted: 'Anything In Life I’ll Do Is Always To Bring Change. To Be A Voice And Vision For Those Who Feel Ignored And Lost! I Have NO Desire To Be Famous Or To Make Countless Movies! I Desire Only Respect, To Be A True Pioneer In My Field! The Worlds Full Of Many Beautiful And Talented Faces, Many Who Are In Our Industries Trying To Make Their Mark. How Many Fight For Marginalised Groups? How Many Try To Open The Door So Others Like Them Can Walk Through?! Not Many.... Representation Matters... This Is For You.'
Rabba Mainu Maaf Kari is a project by Sunshine Studio and New Era Films Pvt Ltd. The movie is directed by Paramjit Singh. It is nice to see that Punjabi makers are experimenting with new actresses.
In an exclusive chat with Ghaintpunjab, Bishamber revealed, "Yes I am in the lead opposite Ninja. It is a story that will attempt to break barriers and deliver something different which we have not yet addressed and seen in Punjabi cinema. I am extremely proud that I am the one breaking that barrier."
It would be interesting to see how Bishamber, who is Britain's first Asian Plus-size model, gets acceptance in the Punjabi film industry. Last she was seen in a Punjabi music video by Amar Sehmbi. The film also has Rupinder Rupi in an important role.
