The 21st edition of the Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival with Star has unveiled Saand Ki Aankh as its closing film. Starring Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar, the film showcases the journey of the two elderly women sharpshooters from Uttar Pradesh-- Chandro Tomar and Prakashi Tomar-- who defied ageism while battling a male-dominated society.
Chandro and Prakashi encouraged their daughters towards a bright future, wining 352 medals each in the course of their professional life. Their extraordinary and courageous stance helped put their village on the world map.
