Bollywood’s bubbly actress Alia Bhatt turns 26 today. She just announced her best birthday gift from her mom Soni Razdan and it’s a teaser of No Fathers in Kashmir, an upcoming film of Soni Razdan. Alia took to Twitter to share the teaser video and captioned it as, “What a grt bday gift mum @sonirazdan gave me!

The film is so special to Alia because it was stuck with the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) for six months due to a clash over certification. Soni Razdan‘s No Fathers In Kashmir garnered a storm of social media support from filmmakers, actors and other bigshots. Even Alia expressed her support along with a plea to the CBFC for her mother’s film.

No Fathers in Kashmir is directed by Ashvin Kumar. It is a love story of two 16-year-olds set against the backdrop of Kashmir who are individually in search for their missing fathers. With a tagline that says, “Everyone thinks they know Kashmir”, the film hints to help show the realities of the locals of Kashmiris and their real stories. The movie will release on April 5, 2019.
