Born To Run! Viveik Kalra Is BLINDED BY THE LIGHT

The wonderfully feel-good film Blinded By The Light premieres across UK cinemas next Friday 9 August, starring our brilliant VIVEIK KALRA in the leading role.

Set in the town of Luton during the austere days of Thatcher’s Britain, the film tells the coming-of-age story of Javed (Viveik), a British-Pakistani Muslim teenager whose life is changed for good after he discovers the music of Bruce Springsteen.

A heartfelt comedy-drama directed by Gurinder Chadha (Bend It Like Beckham), Blinded By The Light is inspired by the life of journalist Sarfraz Manzoor and his love of the Springsteen catalogue. It is based on Manzoor's acclaimed memoir Greetings from Bury Park: Race, Religion and Rock N’ Roll.

Our brilliant HAYLEY ATWELL also stars in a supporting role in the film, alongside Rob Brydon, Kulvinder Ghir and Nell Williams.

So, whether or not you were Born In The U.S.A., or simply Born To Run; if you have a Hungry Heart or if you love Dancing (or even watching movies) In The Dark and want to reminisce over your Glory Days, then rush out to your nearest cinema from 9 August to catch this heartwarming feature on the big screen.
