The music of the film is composed by Gurmeet Singh and the lyrics are beautifully written by Babu Singh Mann. Harbhajan Mann, Neeru Bajwa and Guggu Gill starring film “Heer Ranjha” is a story of eternal love, eternal longing, eternal quest and eternal sacrifice directed by Harjit Singh.
Harbhajan, who started his career with the Punjabi song “Chithiye Ni Chithiye” shot to limelight with his Punjabi pop song “Gallan Goriyan,” is totally dedicated in promoting Punjabi cinema which remained in doldrums after it was hit hard during terrorism. Punjabi singing sensation Harbhajan Mann has successfully depicted the problems faced by NRIs and their deep desire to return to their native land, and now has come up to bring back the rich Punjabi folklores on celluloid.
According to him, this is for the first time that “Heer Ranjha” would be brought on the big screen in Punjabi language while earlier it was made in Hindi language only. Co-produced by Mann, the film is directed by Harjeet Singh and Kshitij Chauhan. The movie is expected to break all records.
Talking about his experience of creating the rich Punjabi folklore, he said they had researched a lot before starting this project based on ‘Heer’ written by Waarish Shah and made it entertaining also. He said the most difficult part of the movie was to create the scenes based on that period. He said they worked out different locations and interacted with people. Speaking at the occasion, Harbhajan Mann said, “I am looking forward to the release of Heer Ranjha and eagerly await the response of my fans and audience.
“I am happy to associate with Eros International in our first venture together and hope through this association, we can open new avenues for Punjabi cinema and take it to another level. We have made this film with a lot of love and sincerely hope audiences enjoy our labour of love,” he added.
The movie will also be releasing in countries like Hong Kong, New Zealand, Dubai, Pakistan etc which will see the release of a Punjabi film for the very first time.
