Tisca Chopra: ‘Qissa’ is a film close to my heart!

After globe-trotting at various film festivals, filmmaker Anup Singh's acclaimed Punjabi film ‘Qissa’ is finally set for a release in all formats on February 20, 2015.

NFDC will release Irrfan Khan and Tisca Chopra starrer ‘Qissa’ on 20 Feb on all formats [theatrical, DVD, VoD] in India.


Ask Tisca Chopra about her reaction to this news and she says, “’Qissa’ is a film close to my heart, as I got to play a role that my grandparents lived in real life - refugees from Pakistan. Anup Singh the director is a master craftsman and it was a true pleasure working with him. Of course the cast is fabulous.”


‘Qissa’, backed by the National Film Development Corporation, has been screened at various film festivals including Toronto International Film Festival, Mumbai Film Festival, Abu Dhabi International Film Festival, International Film Festival Rotterdam and Curacao International Film Festival.


Set in post-partition era, the film focuses on the life of a Sikh named Umber Singh and his family. It talks of the family's displacement from the Pakistan region to the Indian side of the border, and Umber's obsessive desire for a male heir. After having three daughters, Umber decides to raise the fourth child as a boy irrespective of the fact that they had another baby girl.
