Produced under Priyanka and her mother Madhu Chopra's banner Purple Pebble Pictures, the film has been directed by Paakhi A Tyrewala.

'Pahuna is full of hope, that's why resonated with all'
Meanwhile, Paakhi said the film is a symbol of hope, something that helps people get by in a tough world.
"Hope is what we all need. Like one of the characters in the film says, 'It's never all dark, there is always light.' Pahuna is full of hope. That is the reason it resonated with audiences young and old across the globe," she added.
Pahuna had its world premiere at TIFF last year
On her part, Madhu added the film addresses the far-reaching consequences for children when adults make harsh decisions.
Last month, 'Pahuna' was adjudged Best Film (Jury Choice) and Special Mention by Professional Jury in The International Feature Film Category at SCHLINGEL International Children's Film Festival in Germany.
Co-produced by Children's Film Society, India, the film had its world premiere at the TIFF last year.
