If one’s karma is good and one’s faith in the almighty Waheguru is true and from the heart, then believe me, nothing is impossible. Faith can move mountains!

Once you are at peace with yourself and God, you can see miracles everywhere and I strongly believe that if your faith in God is ultimate, you can be sure that he is always walking with you, will look after you and will never let you down! Guru Nanak says, “He, the God will not let you bow in front of anyone if you have belief, faith and your karma is good”; And that is the story of my film “Nanak Naam Jahaz Hai” says Kalyaani Singh, the writer and director of the movie.

She says that when she wrote the story and chose this title, she was aware that it would be compared to the biggest blockbuster of Punjabi cinema that was produced 55 years ago and is still looked upon as one of the best record-breaking works in the industry. But as she said earlier, it was her faith in God that gave her the courage to go ahead and her Karma that told her, she was born to make this film. “I had very positive vibes all around me and I told my husband Maann Singh, renowned journalist & writer who doesn’t mince words and is extremely honest, about my idea for the film & this title. He heard the story and said just 2 words – GO AHEAD!”

Continuing the journey, Kalyaani Singh discusses the development of her project. “I was very happy & confident and then discussed the story in detail with him. This is when he told me that 55 years ago, God had chosen non-Punjabi filmmakers, the very well-known Maheshwari brothers to make this ambitious project successfully and this time he has chosen us, non-Punjabis again, to make a film with the same name and continue its spirit. The first message of Guru Nanak Dev Ji is that “The world is one, all humans are equal”, and it is only our belief in almighty that binds us together.


With the blessings of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, I called our actors as who I believed can carry the film on their strong shoulders and do justice to my subject. Choosing a good star cast means half the work is already done!

Though the story of my film is entirely different from the first one, every performance of my actors will be compared with actors from the previous film and especially with the legendary Prithviraj Kapoor. My actors were excited, but will they be able to devote themselves to the script as I have dreamed of? I was shocked when I saw Mukesh Rishi, Vindu Dara Singh, Sardar Sohi, and Dolly Mattoo performing! They were deeply involved in their roles, and nothing could make me happier.

 My husband and producer of the film, Maann Singh Deep, who was always on the set sitting in some corner and watching the public who were coming to see the shooting, was pleasantly shocked & surprised with the reaction of the public.

 Maann Singh Ji told me one day at our hotel room after the shoot, “Kalyaani, do you know why are we not disturbed by the public even in crowded places? Because for them it is not just any ordinary film; it is their faith in the name of Guru Nanak Dev Ji that they listen to every dialogue with full faith and attention. They close their eyes when they listen to the shabads played on speakers as they are in a state of meditation.”  It is a big responsibility on my tiny shoulders, but I am sure that my guru, Guru Nanak Dev Ji is with me, his blessings are with me, and he will guide me all the way to make this an extremely memorable film.

 “Nanak Naam Jahaz Hai” is a very holy name, which not only Punjabis, but other caste/religion people also have faith and belief in. This film was made 55 years ago starring the legendary actors Prithviraj Kapoor, I. S. Johar, Vimi and Som Dutt. It had won a national award at that time and broke all the records as far as box office collection is concerned. Till today, no Punjabi film has broken the footfall record of “Nanak Naam Jahaz Hai” yet. This movie was also the only Punjabi movie in history to be a Golden Jubilee.

 After 55 years, once again, the film is being made with a different story and renowned star cast. This modern “Nanak Naam Jahaz Hai” is an international Punjabi film which will be released in Punjabi, Hindi, along with English subtitles. Also, this film is the only Punjabi film till date in which the holy Golden Temple, Amritsar has been explored so deeply and vastly because of special permissions granted to this film by the official authorities of Golden Temple, Amritsar. This film is starring Mukesh Rishi, Vindu Dara Singh, Dolly Mattoo, Gavie Chahal, Drishti Grewal and Sardar Sohi.

This film is being written and directed by Kalyaani Singh, produced by Maann Singh and Vedant Singh, and co-produced by Amit Awasthi (Reliance Entertainment). The official Music Launch of the film is scheduled on 2nd May 2024, and Reliance Entertainment will be releasing this film worldwide on 24th May 2024.
