Channa Mereya, an upcoming Punjabi film presented by White Hill Studios and Zee Studios, is touted as Punjab’s first romantic epic saga starring new comers Ninja, Amrit Maan and Payal Rajput along with Karamjit Anmol, BN Sharma and Yograj Singh. Zee Studios official twitter account shared the first look poster of the film recently.There are several rumours doing the rounds that this film is a remake of the super hit Marathi film ‘Sairat’ directed by Nagraj Manjule which released in April 2016. There has been no confirmation to this so far, from the makers of Channa Mereya. It will be interesting to see the Punjabi tadka added to the original Marathi story.
The film is directed by Pankaj Batra who is known for films like ‘Goreyan Nu Daffa Karo’, ‘Channo Kamli Yaar Di’ & ‘Bambukat’ and has been produced by Gunbir Singh Sidhu, Manmord Sidhu in association with Zee Studios.
Channa Mereya also marks the entry of Punjabi singers Ninja and Amrit Maan into the Punjabi film industry. With an already established fan base, the film is surely going to benefit from the presence of these two music industry stars.
The first trailer of the film will be released today. The twitter account of the studio made the announcement, “#WhiteHillStudios & #ZeeStudios Brings you the Biggest Romantic Saga of the Decade. Full Trailer Releasing Tomorrow i.e (25th May, 2017) @6PM”
