'New York is about prejudices after 9/11 attacks'


Mon, Jun 15, 2009 12:00 IST

New York Yashraj Films' upcoming release New York highlights the prejudices against certain nations and communities after the 9/11 attacks in the US, says the film's director Kabir Khan .

It's often described as the day that changed the world. Four hijacked planes went down and three of them crashed into the symbols of all that America stands for. But it's a day that also stemmed prejudices against people of certain religion. This is what director Kabir Khan tackles in 'New York', which is set for release on June 26.

"'New York' is based on part of the political canvas of 9/11, but it speaks of prejudices after the great human tragedy. It is a definite and very relevant subject about post-9/11 prejudices that have increased after the attacks," Khan is quoted as saying by IANS in an interview.




Starring John Abraham , Katrina Kaif and Neil Nitin Mukesh , the film, set in New York, tells the story of three friends and how their lives change forever after the September 11 attacks.

"We have in fact divided time in a pre- and post-9/11 world in the film to highlight its obvious repercussions in times to come. The repercussions of the attacks are still very strongly felt globally and will continue to do so," Khan is quoted to have said.

Adding that shooting the film in Philadelphia wasn't as difficult as expected, Khan said the last day of the film's shooting coincided with the final day of George W Bush at the White House.

"They (New York Film Commission) were fully supportive, as it is not an anti-something film. It is a very balanced story and not a jingoistic film. Even the American crew enjoyed it. In fact, the last day of our shoot was the last day of George W. Bush's presidency in the US...the very next day Barack Obama took charge," said Khan who earlier directed Kabul Express , a film dealing with terrorism in Afghanistan.
