'9 Eleven' wins Rising Star Award in Canada

NEW DELHI: ‘9 Eleven‘, a Bollywood feature film by America-based filmmaker of Indian origin Manan Singh Katohora, has won the 2012 Rising Star Award at the Canada International Film Festival.

The award was given at the annual festival held in Vancouver, featuring films from over 90 countries. The festival is dedicated to the creation of opportunities for the artistic interaction and exchange among independent filmmakers and the film-going community. Each year, awards are presented in all of the main categories for the top films and filmmakers, writers and actors.

Earlier last year, the film ‘9 Eleven‘ had been given an Adult certificate without any cuts by the Central Board of Film Certification in India.

The film portrays the life of 10 people who belong to different walks of life. Though each individual has achieved a measure of success in his or her life, their darkest secrets come out in the open when all of them are given some time for introspection, when they meet each other in a bizarre twist of events. They realise that their lives are inter-woven and this literally shakes up their peaceful lives.

Terrorized to the core by an unknown entity in an unfamiliar place, each individual is petrified and is hesitant to talk or take each other into confidence for one simple reason: The Fear of the Unknown

The film 9 Eleven is a fast paced thriller with undertones of terrorism. Terrorism need not be political, "ideologically" generated or xenophobic. Terrorism can also be a great motivator for conflict resolution or revenge.

Produced by Amar Durga Films in association with JMD Creations, the film stars Devasish Ray, Priya M., Jyoti Singh, Samir Stewart, Sonny Chatrath, Tejash Natali, Nikkitasha Marwaha, Vicki Yung, Homi Irani, Paul Singh, Chinmay Dhamne, Roni Mazumdar, Sonny Suri, Tanuj M., Ripneet Brar, Mandira Mehra, Nilima Mehra, Nitin Verma, , Rashmi Pradhan, Salsabil Malik, Aisha Rasul, Manvi Puri, Shalabh Agrawal, Sumeet Verma, and Vick Krishna.

Kashmera Shah features as a guest artiste in an item number composed by Music Director Jatin Pandit. The lyrics are by Sanjay Chel and the choreography is by Amaan Shabana Khan.
