Mumbai, Oct 16: Seven years after making his directorial debut with Salman Khan-starrer 'Garv', actor Puneet Issar returns to direction with the upcoming ‘I Am Singh'.


‘I Am Singh' is about Sikhs, who, despite living in the US for generations, were mistaken for Arabs and Afghans due to their turbans and became victims of racist violence in the aftermath of 9/11.

Puneet has also penned the script, which he says is inspired by real-life incidents, and even draws on his own experiences.

“With ‘I Am Singh' I want to reiterate the fact that everyone wearing a turban isn't Osama. The film takes a look at the discrimination Sikhs around the world have faced post 9/11. I want to banish stereotypes through my film,” Puneet said.

The film stars Gulzar Chahal, Mika Singh, Rizwan Haider, Tulip Singh and Brooke Johnston.

Puneet, best remembered for his ‘Duryodhan' in B R Chopra's TV epic, ‘Mahabharat', has last acted in Salman Khan's ‘Ready'.
