The ‘Kalank’ star has been supporting the film on her social media while it was having troubles with the Censor Board for certification. She had even requested the CBFC to release the film. Earlier this month, the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT) had suggested that ‘No Fathers In Kashmir’ is fit for a U/A certificate after a few cuts and disclaimers are incorporated in the movie.
The film traces the story of a British-Kashmiri teenager Noor, who is in search of her father. In the journey she befriends Majid, who helps her in her mission. The two develop an innocent love story as they find themselves in the midst of the darkest secrets of the valley.
Besides being its writer and director, Ashvin also stars in the film along with Soni Razdan, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Anshuman Jha and Maya Sarao. The film is set to hit the screens on April 5.
