NewZNew (Chandigarh) : Unlike other youngsters his age who are still struggling to give a meaning to their lives, this young actor, Preet Bhulllar has already carved a destination for himself. For the actor who started his journey from Patti, Amritsar where he was born and brought up, the new destination takes his through the dark lanes of a grave problem in Punjab, drug abuse. This is one of the highlighting themes of Preet Bhullar’s upcoming film Qissa Panjab, directed by Jatinder Mauhar.
For Preet Bhullar who has worked with the best names from theatre starting from Kewal Dhaliwal to Sudesh Sharma, his stint in Punjabi film industry started with his debut film Heer & Hero wherein he was also a producer.
“I had no designs of getting into Punjabi film industry given i was totally serious about theatre. As luck would have happened, I am here a part of the best phase of the Punjabi film industry now,” shares Preet who talks about his upcoming film at length. “To begin with this is a story that I have witnessed with my own eyes, in fact many youngsters of Punjab lived this story in their own right.”
Qissa Panjab which is directed by Jatinder Mauhar and produced by Annu Bains of Pukhraj Productions is an alamagamation of six different stories each dealing with an important topic and subject at large. Preet’s track moves on the lines of drug abuse about which he gets sentimental talking about. “I have seen the terror of drugs, I have seen youngsters losing their lives to it, families losing their sole bread earners . I am so glad that i have got the opportunity to show the same through my track in the film.”
Preet Bhullar who is also a fitness freak and follows no cheat code when it comes to gymming, believes that fitness of mind and health can go a long way in dealing with this and many other problems. At the same time he is thankful to the director Jatinder Mauhar for taking up different ideas. “Punjabi cinema has no dearth of topics, we need some strong and bold directors who can take up socially important issues. Qissa Panjab is not a story about drug abuse, this is just one of the tracks of the film. There are others stories, which trace thier own journey. I am sure the youth will connect with the film,” adds this good-looking actor who wants to concentrate on roles that have some substance to offer.
