‘Bend It Like Beckham’ film-maker braves up and questions historical narrative of 1947 India-Pakistan divide in new film
British Sikh director Gurinder Chadha is all set to visit West Yorkshire where she will talk about the build-up to the India-Pakistan divide leading up to 1947.
The avid film-maker, who’s been setting a benchmark for British Asians in the entertainment industry for over two decades, is renowned for the context of her films.
Chadha’s much-acclaimed films include her ground-breaking 1993 debut ‘Bhaji On The Beach’, ‘Bride and Prejudice (starring Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan, Nitin Ganatra and Anupam Kher) and box-office smash ‘Bend It Like Beckham’ (starring Parminder Nagra, Ameet Chana, Kiera Knightley and Johnathon Rhys Meyers).
Her visit to Bradford’s National Media Museum on Sunday 5th March will be open to a live Q&A session followed by a screening of her new film ‘Viceroy’s House’, which challenges the historical narrative of the Partition of India.
