Gulshan Grover's Short Film 'Forbidden' Is Making Waves Across Global Film Festivals
Gulshan Grover was one of the most important Bollywood villains in the 90’s. If it wasn’t for him, our childhood movie memories would have taken a different turn altogether. Thanks to him and only him, we got the privilege to watch some of the most interesting and twisted characters onscreen.
And now, coming back in action after a long gap, he has set his foot in the world of International cinema and people are totally in awe of him. It’s been quite a while since we last saw him in a Bollywood movie but he has finally made a comeback with a short film.
The talented actor was recently seen in a short movie ‘Forbidden’. This dramatic thriller opened to a full house at many international film festivals. The movie traces the journey of a Sikh woman who is in love with a Muslim man. She is left with two choices, either to run away with her love or be the victim of honour killing by her own family. Inspired by a true story, the movie sheds light on honour killings prevalent in many societies.
Grover is seen playing the important role of ‘Papaji’ and his powerful acting has left international viewers spellbound. Written and directed by Vibha Gulati, the movie stars Gulshan Grover, Salony Luthra, Gopal Divan, and Dhanish Karthik.
The impactful and moving trailer will definitely pique your interest. Even though the subject, which is forbidden love, is not a novel idea, but the manner in which it is portrayed is hauntingly beautiful.
The movie’s focus is on how loving someone from a different religion is forbidden and brings dishonour to one’s family. And your bravest move could be the one wrong turn, which will change your life forever. Imagine when your own family, the ones you love, are the very people aiming to destroy you.
Check out the trailer now:
The movie was premiered at the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival and the New York International Film Festival. And people loved the subject so much that it got a standing ovation.
Speaking to a leading blog, director Vibha Gulati said, “This film is a heartfelt tribute to my amazing friend who had the courage and the conviction to follow her heart and stand up to her family.”
