The film would release on January 13. “The medium of art, especially movies, should be used to raise issues of the society directly or indirectly as it can have a positive affect on the minds of the people and society,” said Amrinder.

Sarvann marks Priyanka’s production debut in Punjabi movie industry. “The biggest reason to make a Punjabi movie for me was my father. When he was not well, he told me to compose a Shabad by Guru Gobind Singh Ji Mitar Pyare, which we were not able to release, so the movie starts with this Shabad which is a very bigthing for me” said Priyanka Chopra via a video message.

Guliani said: “Sarvann is a journey of an NRI protagonist, played by Amrinder, to discover his roots and becoming a sarvann putt. Usually at the age of 23-24, youngsters become rebellious and stop listening to parents, often leading them walking on a wrong path. This is the basic essence of the movie.”
