Dec 31, 2005 IANS


Mumbai, Dec 31 (IANS) Inspired by a true story, Rahul Dholakia's upcoming film "Parzania" deals with the controversial issue of communal violence. The film marks the comeback of actress Sarika and also features American actor and Emmy award winner Corin Nemec.

Actor Naseeruddin Shah is essaying the role of a Parsi in the film, which is a breathtaking untold story of an event that changed the country and the world forever, reports Bollywood Trade.

Allan Webbings, an American, arrives in Ahmedabad city. For a long time, Allan has been searching for answers to find internal peace and understand the horrors that religious differences can create.

Allan chooses India as his playground and Gandhi as his subject. It's here that he meets Cyrus, the local projectionist who brings the young and troubled intellectual into his beautiful family.

Cyrus is a Parsi, a follower of a rarely practised religion that is both small in numbers and neutral to religious politics.

He has a beautiful wife named Shernaz, a practical woman who after 11 years still can't resist his charisma and charm and two children - Parzan, an imaginative 10-year-old who is immersed in his own world - the world of Parzania where the buildings are made of chocolate and the mountains of ice cream.

Parzan in his mind has created the perfect world that only his eight-year-old little sister Dilshad truly understands.

Through Cyrus's family, Allan finds his peace, just before the rest of India loses its sanity.

One morning, the beauty and peace that India is so famous for, is rocked beyond measure as a bomb explodes in a train killing Hindus. Within 24 hours, thousands of Muslims are slaughtered. And in the midst of terror and violence, Parzan goes missing.

While Cyrus fights for his own sanity and searches for his child, Alan battles to uncover the truth behind the riots.

The film has been written by David Donihue and Rahul Dholakia and has been produced by KB Sareen, Rahul Dholakia and Kamal Patel.

Tabla maestro Ustad Zakir Husain has scored the film's music assisted by his renowned percussionist brother Taufique Qureshi.
