Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain Holds Private Screening in United Nations

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 08/11/14 -- "Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain," the upcoming historical-drama release set amidst the real life Bhopal disaster that occurred in India in 1984, held a private screening to a youth assembly in the United Nations on August 7th 2014.

Filmed in India, A Prayer for Rain traces the lives of those living in Bhopal during the lead-up to what is still the world's biggest chemical disaster through to its tragic aftermath, which many feel has still not been addressed, and which continues to have a major impact on people's lives today. The victims of the Bhopal disaster have still, to this day, never received an official apology from the Indian or American government.

The film is produced by Sahara Movie Studios and Rising Star Entertainment both have been committed to the project since inception. Seemanto Roy, Executive Director of Sahara Movie Studios, said, "The Bhopal story was one that Sahara Movie Studios felt should never be forgotten and we wanted to come forward and support this film which we feel serves a broader humanitarian purpose in inspiring the entire human race."

Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain brings together an international cast which includes such notable actors as Martin Sheen, Kal Penn and Mischa Barton. All have indicated their immediate desire to be a part of this film for similar moral reasons.

Notable attendees to the screening include Ravi Walia, Producer at Rising Star Entertainment who also addressed the audience questions and answer session.

Mr. Roy added, "We hope films like this also serve to stimulate corporate responsibility amongst organizations and furthermore inspire them to come forward and support films which have messages such as this one.

Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain will be released in the US in November and to worldwide audiences in December. Additional information on its release can be found via social media outlets Facebook: www.facebook.com/APrayerForRain and Twitter: twitter.com/aprayerforrain
