Other key personalities to attend the preview included former cricketer Sunil Gavaskar and Irfan Pathan.

The film is directed by Vickey Kadam, and it follows the story of Shinda, a young man from a humble background, who joins the police force propelled by familial sacrifices.

Thrilled to share his journey with the film, Jobanpreet Singh, the lead actor said: “I am thrilled to bring Shinda’s story to life in ‘Jahankilla.’ It’s a tale of resilience and determination that resonates deeply with audiences, showcasing the trials and triumphs of those who dare to dream against all odds.”

Gurbani Gill, the lead actress said that portraying the character of Simran has been a journey of self-discovery for her. Her character’s strength and vulnerability are a testament to the complexities of human emotion.

“I’m honoured to be part of a film that celebrates love, sacrifice, and the indomitable spirit of Punjab,” she said.
