Filmmaker aims to unite enemies

May 15, 2003|From Reuters

An Indian filmmaker is seeking permission to shoot a Hindu-Muslim love story in Pakistan in a bid to build on the recent thaw between the nuclear rivals.

The film, yet to be named, is set a couple of months before the bloody partition of the subcontinent into Muslim Pakistan and predominantly Hindu India in 1947 and will have actors from both countries, said Bollywood director Mahesh Bhatt.

"Indians and Pakistanis are still victims of the hatred that began with the partition. There's an urgent need to look at each other more positively. It can be done through films," Bhatt said.
