Oscar-nominated film-maker Ashvin Kumar (Little Terrorist) was having troubles releasing his latest movie for nearly eight months. The makers argued that the Censor Board was giving them a hard time giving them a certificate. Now that the matters have been cleared, No Fathers in Kashmir is now getting a release date on April 5, and we also have the first teaser from the film. It has been revealed by Alia Bhatt on her birthday, since the actress' mother, Soni Razdan is also a part of the film.

No Fathers in Kashmir is about a British-Kashmiri girl who comes to the valley in search of her missing father. In the process, she meets a young boy who falls for her and takes her to the strife-laden regions that land them both in trouble. The promo shows the innocence of their burgeoning romance set in the lovely locales of Kashmir, before things take a serious, nearly fatal turn among the pine trees. Like the tagline promises, this will be a Kashmir we think we know but the youngsters will show a different one.

Watch the teaser of No Fathers For Kashmir below:
The teaser of No Fathers in Kashmir uses the popular Kashmiri folk song, "Hukus Bukus" to give the right mood. Interestingly the same song is also used in crucial moments of two other movies set in Kashmir - last year's Laila Majnu and the recently released, Hamid. Also, both Hamid and No Fathers in Kashmir deal with the lives of people in the valley caught between militants and the Indian army.
