?Khushiyaan? stars Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Rama Vij, Tisca Chopra, and Jasbir Jassi and was commercially released late last year.

According to Academy Secretary Rawail Singh, ?Since its inception, Punjabi Academy always strived to promote the culture and heritage of Punjab.

Keeping in view the response we received on the first edition of festival, this year our all effort is to make it whole new experience for the audience.?
