May 2: Love marriages and arranged marriages have always been a debate in India. It’s just how we Indians say, “Jo Khaye Woh Pachtaye, Aur Jo Na Khaye Woh bhi Pachtaye”. Love marriages have been taboo in smaller cities and villages even today. We’ve seen films like Ishaqzaade, Mohabbatein, Fanaa, etc., taking us through different circumstances, the mates while proceeding further in their relationships.
We will have the release of one such film, The Conversion; it’s a Bollywood drama exploring the dilemma of religious conversions that happen during love marriages in India. The film is directed by Vinod Tiwari and stars Vindhya Tiwari And Prateek Shukla in the lead roles.

Apart from having special screenings, the film is supported by BJP spokesperson of Delhi, Kapil Mishra, who runs the NGO.

After watching private pre-screenings, several people have started pre-bookings of whole shows in theatres for the young daughters aged 12 and above in Anand, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Mumbai, and more commitments, the show pre-bookings of theatres are pouring in from various individuals and organizations.
