The World Premiere of Indian film Footprints by a national award-winning filmmaker Javid Banday.

FOOTPRINTS tells a story about five college friends who now moved away from each other and settled in their lives. Mohsin, the protagonist, loves to capture the natural beauty of Kashmir through his still camera as he is going to lose his eyesight in the next six months, which his non-Kashmiri friends weren’t aware of. So, he wishes to spend some time with his friends and invites them to Kashmir. Despite resentment of the families of the non-Kashmiri friends, they make it happen, and the friends start their journey, which somehow, from a charming expedition, turns out to be a mysterious and odious one.

The World Premiere of FOOTPRINTS is on June 17, 2022, | 7:30 pm at Central Parkway Cinemas, 377 Burnhamthorpe Rd E, Mississauga L5A 3Y1.

Uppekha is a Former Miss India Worldwide, Miss India-Canada Worldwide, and the first Canadian actor to land a starring role on Star Plus prime-time Indian TV soap opera Saath Nibhana Saathiya.
