He goes on to say that this ‘unthinkable’ action resulted in most of the next generation of Sikhs in the UK growing up to be Mona Sardars. “So we have stuck to the events that transpired in history,” he says.
Advani also reveals that this involves a flashback scene in which Kumar’s mother cuts his hair, much to his father’s shock. The sequence plays with Kumar’s voiceover and it is this scene that sets the film in motion.
Emphasising that he didn’t wish to get into any controversy, Advani will be hosting trial runs of the film starting next week. “I’d like to hear people’s opinion to reaffirm that we’ve followed facts resulting from the incidents that happened in reality,” he concludes.
