The show must go on, Covid-19 or no Covid-19 — that appears to be the message with the upcoming slate of releases.
Tunka Tunka, a Punjabi film, was released in theatres across Punjab. The film was originally scheduled to be released on July 16, but it was instead released today, August 5, making it the first Punjabi film to be released in theatres following the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The film, directed by Garry Khatrao is a story of Fateh Singh Sidhu, who aspires to be a national-level cyclist, is portrayed by Hardeep Grewal and Hashneen Chauhan in the film. His father, a poor farmer, prefers that he studies instead. A professional cycling instructor notices Fateh’s talent and insists that he join the academy for training.
Now that the movie has been released in Punjab, cinemas have seen encouraging collections, despite the fact that the film introduces a newcomer to the industry. The film’s box office success has boosted the punjabi film industry’s confidence.
