  1. Great ! I remember wanting to join him as an asstt. while he was making Dharamveer Bharti's(Ed of Dharamyug) Sooraj ka satwan ghoda – he asked how good i was at Hindi over a cutting chai to which i replied If Railway Stn. is 'Lohpath gamini vishram dham then…!? We both had a good laugh! His editor , my neighbour Aseem Sinha edits my films too. Gret show thanks to great Gaitey !

  2. this is a great news about this film festival. two years back, i took the initiative and talked to the PR Department in shilmla. I also screened my film in their office. but couldn't make anything out of it. this time it happened, i'm happy for this. and i believe that this festival is a start for the development in cinema in himachal. but still i fear that govt will become idle an they wot take any step further.

    but the start of pahari cinema is very important for the development of pahari culture and literature. I hope we'll make this soon.

    NOTE FOR MODERATOR AN MR. VIVEK MOHAN: If somehow, you can give me the contact of Mr. Mohan, i'll be thankful to you. From the comment above, i can make it that Mr. Vivek Mohan is somewhere related to filmmaking and i'm searching people from himachal who are related to this field. Please Mohan sir, if u read this then please contact me at "".

    Thank you
