For the first time ever, a feature film is being made in Dehra Dun which will chronicle the struggle for the formation of a separate hill state, which finally came into being in November 2000. Titled Aaj Do, Abhi Do, the Garhwali film based on the historic Uttarakhand movement, is written and directed by Pradeep Bhandari. It may be recalled that the most popular slogan by the activists during the Uttarakhand movement was ‘abhi do, aaj do, Uttarakhand Raj do’. [more]
