Directed by six-time President’s National Award-winner Kireet Khurana, the feature film portrays a fascinating journey of social entrepreneurship through a thought-provoking narrative.
The cast includes acclaimed names such as Subrat Dutta, Ali Faulkner (Twilight Saga-Breaking Dawn), Bidita Bag (Babumoshai Bandookbaaz) Manoj Pahwa (Hey Ram) and Pitobash (Million Dollar Arm) in pivotal roles.
“Rooted in the heartland of India, the film is a relevant and timely story exploring a subject that is a big challenge in the country — the lack of education. After Piku, Azhar, Mubarakan, Poster Boys, the studio is backing yet another content-driven film staying true to its aim of presenting stories that engage, evoke and entertain,” the statement read. The film will be produced by Sony Pictures Networks Productions and Abis Rizvi.
Sneha Rajani, Deputy President & Head, Sony Pictures Networks Productions in a statement said, “At Sony Pictures Networks Productions, it is our constant endeavour to deliver films which not only entertain our audience but also evoke thought. With T for Taj Mahal, we are proud to bring to the screen, yet another quality story. We have always been committed to go beyond the ordinary and back unique stories and Kireet’s film is yet another step in that direction.”
“T for Taj Mahal is an idea that is built on the fact that education is a basic right and that a simple idea could spark a revolution. I truly believe that cinema has the power to start a relevant conversation that can empower lives,” Kireet further added.
