Created, written, produced by, and stars full-time NHS doctor Parvinder Shergill, short film ‘Kaur’, is set for release exclusively on BritBox UK – available via ITVX Premium –  from Tuesday 18th July.

‘Kaur’ explores identity, faith, racism and female empowerment and was created, written, produced by and stars award-winning filmmaker and full time NHS doctor Parvinder Shergill from Pinder Productions.

It’s co-produced and co-written by Juggy Sohal from Flip the Script Network, in association with Raise Creatives.  

Also starring Nina Wadia (Aladdin, Eastenders) and Stephen Uppal (Hollyoaks), the film follows Avani (Shergill) and her decision to wear a Sikh turban for the first time.

It’s a choice that is very much against her father’s wishes whilst her mother, played by Nina, is supportive but struggles with the tensions it causes within the family as her husband wrestles with his own faith.

‘Kaur’ is set to be developed into a full length feature film written by Parvinder Shergill, which will introduce five new key characters into the storyline.
