Bollywood actor Vijay Raaz, who is turning director with period war drama Kya Dilli Kya Lahore, says his film raises some pertinent questions while depicting the pain and agony of partition. “My film depicts the pain and the agony that every average Indian or any Pakistani has gone through. I have tried to recount those memories through the characters of Rehmat Ali and Samarth Pratap Shastri in this film,” Raaz told reporters here while promoting the film.

The 50-year-old actor, best known for his roles in Mira Nair’s Monsoon Wedding, Raghu Romeo, Delhi Belly and Delhi 6, is also playing the character of Rehmat in the film. Set immediately after India’s Independence, the film narrates what happens when, Samarth, an Indian soldier who came from Lahore after partition meets a Pakistani soldier, Rehmat who was born and brought up in Delhi’s Chandni Chowk but had to shift to Lahore after partition. On choosing to debut as a director with a subject like this, Raaz said, “I never thought that I will be directing but when the story came to me, I got too involved with it. Being born and brought up in Delhi I can connect to the emotions, subsequently the producer offered me to direct.”
