Gurnam decides to spoil the fun of getting married to Sargun and is determined to tie the knot with a girl from her village so that she cannot ignore him. The battle between the two enraged ex-lovers that starts from hereon is hysterical and the USP of the film.

Manish Kalra, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 India said, “Punjab is an important market for us at ZEE5 and we have focused on expanding our presence in this market consistently. We have had the good fortune of collaborating with the foremost storytellers in Pollywood to showcase blockbuster Punjabi films and ‘Sohreyan Da Pind Aa Gaya’ is another strategic addition to our library. Sargun Mehta and Gurnam Bhullar’s last film, ‘Surkhi Bindi’ saw great traction on our platform and with the unusual and wacky plot of ‘Sohreyan Da Pind Aa Gaya’, we are confident that this movie too will strike a chord with the viewers and tickle their funny bones”.
Director Ksshitij Chaudhary said, “Witness our film’s second innings on India’s largest homegrown OTT platform, ZEE5 on 23rd September. This film was made with a lot of heart, humour, good intentions and a purpose to entertain. So, we hope that our efforts reach more and more people via its digital premiere and prove to be a super hit”.
Actor Sargun Mehta said, “I had a lot of fun shooting for this film as it is not your typical rom-com. This film starts with romance but very soon leads to revenge which is the most fun part of this film. Viewers will get to see a different kind of chemistry between me and Gurnaam in this one. We definitely see greater traction towards the film on ZEE5 as this is the perfect family entertainer one would want to invest in”.
Actor Gurnam Bhullar said, “It was a fun ride shooting for this film as the story is so unique and exciting. Love stories usually end with a happy ending but in this one, it starts with romance and ends with an attempt to seek revenge from an ex-lover. Now that the film belongs to the fans, I am excited for them to sample the film on ZEE5 and shower their love. I hope that the World Digital Premiere is a success”.
