Vidhu Vinod Chopra is back on the director’s chair with Shikara. The tagline of the film reads, ‘The Untold Story of Kashmiri Pandits’. The trailer opens in 1990 when Kashmiri Pandits were forced out of Kashmir. The trailer claims that over 4 lakh Kashmiri Pandits had to leave their homes.
The film introduces two newcomers – Sadia and Aadil Khan. The film’s story focuses on their struggle as they leave their home and have to start afresh in a refugee camp.
The visuals here are quite striking as we see the valley burn. We also see some old footage of the area.
