Pahuna, The Little Visitors, produced by Priyanka Chopra’s Purple Pebble Pictures, has made India proud internationally. The Sikkimese film bagged two awards — Best Film (Jury Choice) and Special Mention By Professional Jury in the International Feature Film Category — at the ongoing SCHLINGEL International Children’s Film Festival in Germany.

“Pahuna is relevant anywhere in the world where there is conflict, dislocation and pain. Priyanka set up the production house with the idea of giving regional stories, artistes and crew, a pan-India presence and if possible, international exposure. With this, we have achieved global exposure,” she says, adding that the project will have its premiere in India in December.
