National Award winning film ‘Nanak Shah Fakir’ (2015) has found a supporter in Akshay Kumar as it prepares for re-release.

“It is kind of Akshay to support our film and launch its trailer. His help means a lot to us. Our movie spreads the message of love and goodness. It follows Guru Nanak Devji’s journey across the globe, spreading the message of Ik Onkar, equality of all religions, castes and genders.”, producer Harinder Sikka told Mid-Day.

‘Nanak Shah Fakir’ won 3 national awards in 2016: Nargis Dutt Award for Best Feature Film on National Integration and the Best Costume Designer and Best Make-up Artist. However, the film faced a ban due to major protests by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) a week after its 17th April, 2015 release.

‘Nanak Shah Fakir’ is now slated to release on 13th April 2018, with a trailer launch this Thursday, 22nd March.
