In yet another step to promote Punjabi culture and heritage and to bring the social issues related to Punjab into limelight, Rajiee M Shinde, CEO, PTC Network, has designed and executed the concept of ‘The Cinema for Television’.
For the first time in the history of Punjabi television, films based on classics, novels, comedy, social issues and many other related subjects will be made especially and exclusively for Television audience. In this unique venture, a series of films will be produced under the banner of PTC Motion Pictures.
Film titled ‘Kuknoos’, directed by Mukesh Gautam, is the first Punjabi film in this series with many more in pipeline. Based on 1984 Anti-Sikh riots, this film is a story of a man who rises from the ashes with his firm determination and hard work, after he loses his family and ancestral business in the riots, rather than indulging himself in violence. With the passage of time he not only regains his lost glory but also becomes more successful person then his forefathers.
‘Kuknoos’ will premiere on Sunday 6th March 2016 at midday and 19:00.
