Balraj Sahni

  1. Om Shivpuri. Jalian Wala Bagh, India, 1977.   The  much troubled film about the infamous 1919 massacre was begun by the acclaimed Indian director Hrishikesh Mukherjee. With a cast headed  by father-and-son actors Balraj and Parikshat Sahni. Then, Balraj died and the project was shelved.  Years later, the  producer Balrag Tah picked up the pieces and directed Shipuri –  plus crowd-pleasers Vinod Khann and Deepti Naval. Except  the real star was Parikshat as the assassin of the  man behind the massacre – and the finished film remained unreleased for ten years.
