Thimphu: Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche’s third feature film is set to be refreshingly different. Unlike his two previous films – The Cup and Travellers and Magicians – Vara, meaning blessing or boon in Sanskrit, will have a cast of professional actors, some of whom are well-known Bollywood actors.
Based on the novel Blood and Tears by the celebrated Indian poet and novelist, Sunil Gan-gopadhyay, the film will be in Hindi medium. Some of the potential lead actors include Imran Khan, Shahid Kapoor, Shahana Goswami, Mamatha Bhukya, and Padmapriya Janakiraman.
