Telugu filmmaker P Suneel Kumar Reddy says his film Gulf will inspire the migrant workers around the world as it is based on the experiences of several immigrants, especially from Indian sub-continent.
The film tells a story of a youngster, who is frustrated with his financial growth in his traditional occupation of weaving clothes.
“Due to the lack of proper job prospects in his hometown and the peer pressure to make riches he chooses to migrate to gulf region,” said Reddy.
“There are many success stories and also some failure stories in this region. This film intended to discuss various case studies in an entertaining fashion.”
He said the movie also includes success stories of entrepreneurs and their stories will be inspirational for other migrant workers.
Reddy said that the contribution of Gulf migrants to the Indian sub-continent is enormous and the film will be an effort to bring attention to their sacrifices and respect they deserve.
“Many labourers sent their hard-earned money back to the country to educate their children and bring prosperity to their families.
“This film also explains how lack of understanding of the law of the land often brings trouble to migrants,” he said.
The film is in final stages of shooting and is being made in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam languages.
Chetan Maddineni, Santhosh Pawan, Anil Kalyan and Dimple are some of the actors in the movie.
