Award-winning Indian filmmaker Nagesh Kukunoor, who is known for heartwarming films like Iqbal (2005) and Aashayein (2010), is coming to Singapore to release his new children’s film, Dhanak. The movie, which has received international appreciation at film festivals, has been adapted into a novel by award-winning children’s author, Anushka Ravishankar, published by Duckbill Books.

This book has the distinction to be India’s first children’s movie novelisation.

Dhanak is the emotional story of a 10-year-old girl Pari, who travels across Rajasthan with her blind brother, 8, to fulfil her promise to him that he will be able to see before his next birthday. Her plan is to rope-in her real-life hero, Shah Rukh Khan. Will her plans work?

Dhanak will be released in Singapore on June 10 followed by a book launch on June 11.

Dhanak has been written and directed by Nagesh, and stars Krrish Chhabria and Hetal Gada in the lead.
