Mumbai, Aug 6 (IANS) The tragic Komagata Maru incident, whose 100th anniversary falls this year, is finally going to unfold on the big screen as part of a co-production treaty signed between India and Canada. Confirming these details, a source from Canada said, “It (‘Komagata Maru’) would now be a $22 million Indo-Canada production to be directed by an A-lister from Hollywood.” “It will have one top Indian actor playing a Sikh. One top Japanese actor and one Hollywood actor, besides many other prominent actors from India, Canada and the US.” Komagata Maru was a Japanese ship hired by a Malaysia-based wealthy Sikh Gurdit Singh in 1914 to forcibly bring 376 Indians, mostly Sikhs, into Canada to challenge racist laws of that time.
