Produced by Sangita Sinha and Siddhant Sinha of Ananda Film & Telecommunications Pvt. Ltd., and Directed by Ajai Sinha- best known for his TV shows Hasratein, Astitva, Justujoo and Ghar Ek Sapna. Ajai Sinha was recently awarded the Best Director for KHAP at the Oslo Norway Film Festival.
KHAP, a story about the Khap Panchayat and the much talked about issue of Honour Killings. The film stars veteran actors like Om Puri, Govind Namdev, Manoj Pahwa, Anooradha Patel and Mohnish Bahl amongst the new talent Uvika Choudhary and Sarrtaj.
The land where KHAP rules, a marriage is not made in heaven. Here, nothing matters, not even true love. What matters is the age old custom that no one has ever dared to challenge. KHAP is a tale of two different worlds colliding each other over a love story which we take as a norm in our world. Till then, in the world of KHAP, a marriage is only sanctioned if it satisfies age old customs. If someone defies their diktat, an unofficial illegal death sentence is passed and executed in the most gruesome manner. But when the guardians of the old faith do it to lovers from Delhi, they challenge their supremacy in a way, no one ever dared to do. Is their marriage made in heaven?
The music of KHAP is by Annujj Kappoo and the songs in the film have been sung by ace singers like Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Shaan, Shreya Ghoshal, Jagjit Singh and Rekha Bhardwaj amongst others.http://www.indianentertainment.info/wp-content/uploads/video/khap_theatrical.flv
