The one-hour-and-10-minute-long film is being shot as a documentary. It even features an actor playing Husain. “It is a docu-feature in English. I auditioned more than 100 people for the role.” The film is scheduled for an October release in theatres and international film festivals. It will feature friends of Husain from the Indian art fraternity, including artists SH Raza, Ram Kumar, Krishen Khanna, Jatin Das and beauty expert Shahnaz Husain. “They have shared such information about him that no one knows till date. You won’t find all this material on Google or any other source.”
Barkha’s most notable work so far has been the Bollywood film Sanam Teri Kasam (1982) that she had produced.
