AR Rahman wasn't sure on doing Partition film: Gurinder Chadha”

Chaddha is now in India to promote her film Partition: 1947 starring Huma Qureshi in the lead.

As for the music of the film, while A R Rahman expressed his happiness over the scores he has composed, he added that his personal favourite is the one he composed for 'Partition' which is where he played the piano. I had never imagined as a little girl who grew up hearing all these stories from her grandmother that one day I will be making this film with such a handsome and capable cast.

"But I kept on persuading him". Then I met him in LA and showed him the rough cut of the film. I made a film in England, France, America so, I think about actors all over the world while casting for my film. "We see how they talk, emote and how they act and not whom they pray to", she stresses. The launch event saw director Gurinder Chaddha, Huma Qureshi, Rahman, Hariharan, Denzil Smith and Hans Raj Hans. The film unfolds the trauma that people went through due to the division, and how it changed their lives. "She said "yes, let's work it out", Chadha told PTI. First, when she told me it's a film about Partition, I did not pay much attention.

"This film is very important, especially for the younger generation who are very judgemental and sometimes have opinionated status". The cast of the project, which released internationally as "Viceroy's House", is led by Manish Dayal, Huma and the late actor Om Puri. "I am looking forward to making this movie with the boy who is a British-Pakistani", says Gurinder. The film is slated to release in India on August 18.
