Filmmaker Harry Baweja is making Chaar Sahibzaade, a 3D animation film on Sikh history.
After his 2008 science-fiction film, Love Story 2050, tanked at the box office, Baweja has now taken up his first animation film.
“While going through the pages of Sikh history, as I focused on the dramatic events around the lives and sacrifices of the four sons of (tenth Sikh Guru) Shri Guru Gobind Singh, I knew I had the story of my next film in hand. I knew that it would not be possible to make a live-action film on the four sons of the Guru, so animation was the only option in which format I could make a feature film on this part of Sikh history,” says Baweja.
The film, set for release later this year, tells the story of the sacrifices of the four sons of Guru Gobind Singh -- Baba Ajit Singh, Baba Jujhar Singh, Baba Zorawar Singh and Baba Fateh Singh. “It took me an intense effort of literary and technical research under the guidance of the religious leaders for over three years to come up with the project,” adds Baweja.
