As soon as Salman Khan heard about the Kamagatu Project he had the urge to come onboard and highlight the 102-year-old Sikh incident that had to be renewed in a whole new light.

The incident gained a whole new perspective under the current Donald Trump’s reign where ethnic and racial discrimination in America is on the rise.

“It’s an honor to a partner with Salman and SKF once again to ensure this historic story, which has challenged many racial laws in the western world is finally told. The issues of racial acceptance and due processes are at the heart of the story and continue to be relevant in today’s world.

We were pleased and humbled that the Right Honorable Prime Minister Justin Trudeau earlier this year recognized and apologized in the House of Commons for the unjust treatment committed against these migrants.

We are excited to announce this production will commence in 2017 as we celebrate Canada, its diversity as well as its 150th anniversary. This film will be co-produced by Vinay Virmani and Pauline Dhillon,” said First Take Entertainment’s Dr. Ajay Virmani.
