Vastavam web:  Filmmaker Brahmanand S Siingh is set to release the documentary on Ghazal maestro Jagjit Singh in February.Titled “Kaaghaz Ki Kashti”, the film is an evocative account of the small-town boy who became famous for his music and ghazals.”The biography of late Jagjit Singh will be released in February 2018,” Siingh told.The director also talked about his another project, “Jhalki”, which narrates the story of a nine-year-old girl, who sets out to find her younger brother against the backdrop of child labour in the carpet-weaving factories of India.
Talking about the movie, Siingh said cinema is the best medium to spread awareness about this social malaise.”Children are close to my heart. Today, one in every seven children is a labourer. They have no idea of childhood because they are in this vicious trap.”Jhalki” is set against the backdrop of children’s rights activist and Nobel laureate, Kailash Satyarthi’s Bachpan Bachao Andolan (Save Childhood Movement).The film stars Boman Irani, who portrays Satyarthi, along with Tannishtha Chatterjee, Divya Dutta and Sanjay Suri.
