Baisakhi Special: Here are 5 Punjabi movies that signified Punjab's rich culture and heritage
Baisakhi is one of the most important festivals in Punjabi culture. It is celebrated on the 13th of April every year and marks the beginning of the Punjabi New Year. The festival holds great significance for the Sikh community, as it was on this day in 1699 that Guru Gobind Singh Ji established the Khalsa Panth, a brotherhood of pure and saintly people who pledged to uphold the principles of righteousness and truth.
Here are 5 Punjabi films that signified Punjab's rich culture and heritage:
