From engaging the audience with his acting to entertaining them with his musical talent, Roshan Prince has always been very active in the Punjabi entertainment industry.

If his previous film “Ranjha Refugee” had him playing an Indian and Pakistani in a double role, his upcoming film “Munda Faridkotia” will take the reel confusion a notch higher, with Prince hopping between India and Pakistan.

Directed by Mandeep Singh Chahal and produced by Daljit Singh Thind, the movie will be releasing this Friday and Prince was in the city for promotion work.

“Munda Faridkotia” features the story of a young man from Faridkot who is full of life. His life changes when mistakenly, he lands across the border in Pakistan’s Faridkot.

“Fearing that he’s from the other nation, this character pretends to be mute to stay away from difficulties. I had a lot of fun playing this character and I am glad that my entire team helped me immensely in executing this role,” Prince said.

The film’s leading lady, Sharan Kaur, a popular TV actress who’s making her Punjabi film debut, said she underwent some transformation to fit into her character named Mariyam.

“I was required to gain weight and pierce my nose to play the role and I happily obliged since this project is very dear to me. The best part is that I also got to learn speaking Punjabi with a Pothwari accent, popular in Pakistan Punjab, for which I took training before the beginning of the shoot.”

Director Mandeep Singh Chahal said he was extremely happy that he got such a wonderful team to work with.

Daljit Singh Thind, who is the producer of the film, has been a silent producer earlier in highly successful Punjabi films like “Punjab 1984”, “Sardaarji” series and “Channa Mereya”. Besides Roshan Prince and Sharan Kaur, the film also stars Navpreet Banga, Mukul Dev and ensemble cast like Karamjit Anmol, BN Sharma, Hobby Dhaliwal and Mukul Dev. — TNS
