Oscar nominated film director, screenwriter, and human rights activist Ashvin Kumar is visiting the UK to find the 16 year old actress to star in his new film Noor, which will be shot in both the UK and Kashmir later this year. Based on true events, Noor tells the story of a teenage girl from Britain trying to solve the mystery of her father’s disappearance in Kashmir.

A feature length narrative film, Noor is about the human impact of the crisis in Kashmir. It’s the story of three generations of women who are trapped in one of the world’s forgotten conflicts, which has left over 100,000 people dead.

Speaking about the film, Kumar said: “I want to make this film to show people the human side of what’s going on in Kashmir; to change the narrative so that they can understand – there is still hope. I’ve made two documentaries about Kashmir over the last five years, Inshallah, Football and Inshallah, Kashmir; but my heart has always been in drama, and so I’ve spent the last two years distilling the many tales I’ve heard on my travels into one film: NOOR.”

An exclusive interview with Kumar will be published in Asian Voice next week.
