'Let every child be free... to be a child' said Nobel Peace Laureate, Kailash Satyarthi. Keeping this wise thought in mind, and making it the subject, director Brahmanand D Siingh made a film, which brings to you a heartwarming tale of hope and courage. Titled Jhalki, the film deals with the sensitive issue of child trafficking and child labour.

The makers unveiled the trailer launcher an event in Mumbai in presence of  director Brahmanand S Siingh, co-director Tanvi Jain, producer Annand Chavan, actors Boman Irani, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Sanjay Suri, composer Sandesh Shandilya, Arti Jha (plays Jhalki) and Goraksha Sakpal (plays the brother) along with many kids who had come from an NGO, to be the part of the event.

Talking about the same, Brahmanand S Siingh said, “We have a powerful medium called cinema and if you can make a good film, then nothing like it. Happy to have got this cast that makes the film more pleasure and purposeful.“ Tannishtha Chatterjee further added, “The specialty of this film is its sensitivity, kids are very sharp and open. I am very happy and proud to be a part of this film. Working on such a film has impacted me a lot personally.” 

Boman Irani who plays a character inspired by Kailash Satyarthi, said, “I was writing my own film one day and got a message saying that we would like you to be part of a film based on child trafficking. The message flashed again in a few minutes and just typed DONE, though generally, I take some time to respond to messages unless it is my wife’s message.”

Jhalki also stars Joy Sengupta, Akhilendra Mishra, and Govind Namdev in the pivotal roles releases on September 27, 2019. The film’s story is written by filmmaker Prakash Jha and is being distributed by Panorama Studios.
