MUMBAI: Hindi movie channel Sony Max will be kicking off 2018 with the world television premiere of one of the most critically acclaimed movies of 2017, ‘Simran’ on 12 January at 8 pm.
Directed by ace director, Hansal Mehta with Kangana Ranaut in the titular role, Simran is based on the real-life sensational story of 24-year-old Indian-American, Sandeep Kaur, who robbed several banks in Arizona, California, and Utah in 2014 under glamorous disguises.
Simran is the story of Praful Patel, a 30-year-old divorcee, played effortlessly by Kangana Ranaut, who lives with her Gujarati parents in Georgia and works as a housekeeper in a hotel. As is the case in most middle-class houses, the family is her biggest critic. To escape the family drama, Praful flies off to Las Vegas and that’s where her real troubles begin when she goes to a casino.
