Mumbai, Jan 5 (Washington Bangla Radio) - Zubaan tells a coming-of-age story of a young Punjabi man who develops melophobia. His journey in conquering his fear of music and thus finding himself forms the essence of the film. Shot in locations in Punjab and Delhi, Zubaan opened the prestigious Busan International Film Festival last year where debutant director Mozez Singh subsequently bagged the Rising Director award.

Raju Chadha's Wave Cinemas will release Zubaan in theaters in India on March 4.

The musical is produced by Guneet Monga and Shaan Vyas of Sikhya Entertainment (makers of The Lunchbox and Masaan) and Metamozez Entertainment. Zubaan stars Vicky Kaushal and Sarah-Jane Dias in the lead roles.

Vicky Kaushal was one of the most impressive debutant last year in the critically acclaimed Masaan. He has signed up for upcoming films by Anurag Kashyap and Aanand L Rai.

Sarah-Jane Dias was greatly appreciated for her performance in her most recent film - the critically-acclaimed Angry Indian Goddesses.

Zuban has played to an overwhelming response among expatriate Indian communities of Los Angeles, New York and Vancouver. Wave Group Chairman Raju Chadha and filmmaker & CEO Wave Cinemas Rahul Mittra were impressed by Zubaan's unique and fresh approach to mainstream filmmaking and feel it is going to be a significant film for Bollywood.

Bhushan Kumar's T-Series is on board as the music label and is projecting it to be the musical album of the year. Watch the 2nd official trailer of Zubaan.
