Karanvir Bohra is acting and producing a short film, Ijazat, which revolves around the love story of Rajiv Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi. Talking about the movie Karanvir says, “It is a simple story, which is made to create a different type of content. I’ve always been fascinated with classic love stories of the ’50s and the ’60s. They don’t write such stories or make such movies anymore.”
Talking about how he hit upon the idea of the story, Karan adds, “I was browsing through the Net, when I chanced upon the show, Rendezvous with Simi Garewal, with late Rajiv Gandhi. I was mesmerised by the way he spoke and the way he carried himself with such elegance. The way he would speak about Sonia Gandhi, how they met and how he mustered up the courage to seek permission from his mother.” Priya Benerjee of Jazbaa fame also stars in this short film, which will be made in English and Italian.
