This multi- talented personality of the Punjabi entertainment industry will be seen playing the lead role in the film. And as the name suggests, the film will be an epic on Sikh History. For those of you not aware, Nankana Sahib is a city and capital of Nankana Sahib district in the Punjab province of Pakistan. It is named after the first guru of the Sikhs and the founder of Sikh faith, Guru Nanak Dev Ji, who was born here and first began preaching in the same place. This historic city is of great religious value for the Sikhs and pilgrims from all over the world, visit this place.
Congratulatory wishes began to pour in on twitter as soon as he announced the film:

Manjeet Maan, a former actress, made her directorial debut in 2010 with Sukhmani : Hope for Life and runs a film production company named ‘Sai Productions’ based in Mumbai.
Knowing Gurdas Maan and his love and deep understanding of the Punjabi heritage and culture, this movie is surely going to be a treat for all his fans and the Punjabi movie going audience at large. Especially in times like these, when the problems in Punjab seem to be the highlight in majority of the Punjabi films made in the current times, ‘Nankana’ feels like a breath of fresh air and the anticipation quotient for the film is already high.
