Indian singer-songwriter turned actor Diljit Dosanjh’s film titled Punjab 95 is set for its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). The 48th edition of TIFF is scheduled to take place from September 7-17, 2023.

Based on the life of prominent human rights activist Jaswant Singh Khalra, the film is directed by Honey Trehan. Arjun Rampal and Suvinder Vicky, who recently was hugely appreciated for his leading act in the Netflix series Kohhra, also star in main roles.

Khalra was instrumental in discovering evidence of abduction, murder, and cremation of thousands of unidentified persons by the police. His investigation, concerning 25,000 illegal cremations in Punjab during the militancy period from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, sparked worldwide protests.

T​he first-look poster of the movie was shared by Dosanjh on his Instagram page with the caption, "Waheguruji ka Khalsa, Waheguruji ki Fateh! World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Presenting the first look of Punjab ‘95, a compelling story based on the life of human rights activist Jaswant Singh Khalra.”

TIFF will release the showtime for Punjab 95’s world premiere on August 15.
