Harry Baweja speaks regarding what inspired the film,
“There comes a time in one’s life when one looks back……overcoming the famous line of the famous poet William Henry Davies “what is this life if full of care, we have no time to stand and stare…..”and realizes, it’s time to be of service….to the society, to the roots you belong to……..and the search within me started…to look for a platform I could use to complete my mission…what better I thought than a film that could make millions visually conscious, and aware about the History of Northern India.
I picked up the pages from the Sikh History which were very dramatic….pages that smouldered my heart and at the same time made me feel proud of the sacrifices of the Four sons of Shri Guru Gobind Singh ji: Baba Ajit Singh Ji, Baba Jujhar Singh Ji, Baba Zorawar Singh Ji and Baba Fateh Singh Ji.
These four young sons of Shri Guru Gobind Singh ji stood up with courage, unusual for their ages! But that’s what is extraordinary about the story of these four brothers, bravado so unusual, that I couldn’t resist making a film on them! Martyrdom in Khalsa is fundamental and represents an important institution of the faith. That the history of any religion may be written with pen & ink… but the Glorious Sikh History is written with the edge of Sword & the redness of the blood. The foundation of Sikhism is very strong, and it is cemented on the supreme sacrifices of its great Martyrs, including The “Chaar Sahibzade”
