This Friday, we will talk about television on the big screen! You didn’t guess it? The Punjabi period film Television hits theaters this week and will take audiences back to the days when community viewing was a big thing. Directed by Taj, the film stars Kulwinder Billa, Mandy Takhar, Gurpreet Ghuggi, BN Sharma, Harby Sangha, among others. The music will be released under the Saga Music banner and will be distributed digitally by Unisys Infosolutions Pvt Ltd.
The lead actors, Kulwinder Billa and Mandy Takhar, are paired up for the first time and enjoyed filming together. The Television trailer premiered recently; Kulwinder says: “We had planned to publish it earlier, but no one felt like doing anything after the shocking and sad news of the murder of Sidhu Moosewala. We waited for the last rites and the prayer ceremony. But the industry cannot be stopped from functioning because the livelihood of many people depends on it. As for the film, I think this family artist will attract his own audience via word of mouth. And it’s a story that most audiences will identify with.
Kulwinder says his family owned the old TV with a shutter, but regrets not keeping it. Regarding singing, he says, “Music is my first love and it would never be compromised in the pursuit of my acting career.”
For her part, Mandy declares: “I have no memory of ‘the old days of television’, since I grew up in London. But my childhood addiction to watching TV helped me relate to the character. After watching the film, the audience will discover that the main role is television – each character revolves around him.
She will next be seen in the Punjabi film, Haye Ni Meri Moto, and has put on a lot of weight to look like the character she plays on screen. Although her weight loss journey has now begun, she shares how gaining weight hasn’t been so easy! Ask her if the physical transformation like in Haye Ni Meri Moto or the mental preparation for TV was more difficult and she replies, “Both take effort and hard work and since I’ve done both, I wouldn’t dare not to say that one is less than the other. .”
