Film inspired by gang rape victim case in Delhi set for release next month

NEW DELHI: “Tara - The Journey of Love & Passion”, a film inspired by the case of the gang rape victim in Delhi last December, is being released on 12 July after having acclaim at several festivals overseas.

Awnindra Pratap Pandey (Boyfriend of the gang rape victim generally referred to as Nirbhaya) said: “I totally feel for the cause on which this film is based and I am happy that someone has taken the step towards empowerment of Women. I hope this small step would lead to the betterment of the society and provides a message to everyone.”


Speaking a press meet in Delhi, lead actress Rekha Rana said, “I am from Delhi and I was very upset with the Nirbhaya incident. I feel lucky that this film came to me. This is the kind of role I have been looking forward to.”

Producer and Director Kumar Raj said, "I happened to attend one of her (Rekha’s) plays, I had already auditioned more than 300 girls and was in search for leading lady for a very long time.” Impressed with her stage presence, Rekha was called by Kumar for an audition in front of ten people including the writer, out of which nine people voted for her."

This powerful story of self-discovery transcends the original theme of tribal strife to raise a universal question: Can you always choose freedom and self-respect over social acceptance? The journey of the ordinary woman Tara in extraordinary situations reveals the story of love and passion and how she deals with this dilemma.
