The leading ladies of two ageless love stories, both directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra had a chance meeting at the first-ever star-studded screening of his upcoming release, ‘Shikara’. Both, Manisha Koirala and Sadia, the leading actors from ‘1942: A Love Story’ and ‘Shikara’, met at the screening which totally made it a sight to behold. Both the film’s storylines were embedded in conflict-ridden times.

Interestingly, Manisha Koirala was moved by the heart-wrenching story and realistic portrayal in ‘Shikara’. Chopra’s 1994 release, ‘1942: A Love Story’ had Manisha playing the character of Rajeshwari ‘Rajjo’ Pathak. The romance in the film was shown developing in spite of the political and social unrest at the time. That is exactly what Sadia’s character brings to the screen with ‘Shikara’ which is all set to release this Friday. With the parallels of two romances blooming in the worst of the times, makes the director’s storyline ageless.

‘Shikara’ is one of the most anticipated films of the year. Inspired by Vidhu Vinod Chopra‘s own life, the film is a tribute by the director’s mother. The film brings back the untold story of Kashmiri pandits from the valley of 1990.
