Winners of art contest interpret ‘Kya Dilli Kya Lahore’

To celebrate the spirit of India-Pakistan friendship, makers of “Kya Dilli Kya Lahore” had asked fans to draw a poster to interpret the film through art and photography — and the three winners announced Wednesday portrayed many hues of this delicate relationship.

The art work of Iman Jeet Singh, a hotel management student from Mumbai, that is a monochromatic representation of a man who is wearing part-turban and part-skull cap on his head, with the name of film pasted on his face, has won the contest.

Arnab Pal from Uttar Pradesh and Chandan Mondal from Kolkata are first and second runners-up, said a statement.

The fans were invited to design an art piece in the form of paintings, sketches, digital art and photography based on the theme of dissolving boundaries, humanity and friendship.

The winners will get to meet the star cast of the film and also a chance to meet writer-lyricist Gulzar who has mentored the film from its script level.

The film, the directorial debut of actor-turned-filmmaker Vijay Raaz, is a satire on India-Pakistan relations and narrates a humorous yet emotional story of a bond formed between an Indian and a Pakistani soldier stationed at the border.
