Khap - A Story Of Honour Killing
Director Ajai Sinha — best known for his TV shows Haasratein, Astitva and Ghar Ek Sapna — is all set to complete his directorial venture tentatively titled Khap.
Incidentally the film is based on the controversial Khap community based in the remote villages of Haryana. The film stars Om Puri, Manoj Pahwa, Mohnish Behl, Yuvika Chowdhury, Govind Namdev, Ravi Jhankal, Anuradha Paudwal and newcomer Sartaj Gill.
Ajai Sinha said, “I had read about the killing of Manoj and Babli three years ago and I had decided to make a film on it. I agree that some people do not believe in getting married within the same gotra, but there is absolutely no justification for killing someone for this. There are numerous other cases just like the Babli and Manoj case and I have shown that in my film. The Khap community was created some 50 years ago and is made up of around 40 villages. They believe that no one should marry within the Khap.”
