Wildly popular Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat shines as Aretha Gupta, an Indian- American woman returning home to work in her parents’ restaurant after a career disappointment, only to find herself caught up in the fervor of a local Obama campaign. A staunch Democrat, she finds herself falling for handsome campaign manager Kyle Franklin (Brian White of Stomp the Yard & TNT’s Men of a Certain Age fame) with just as much passion for the election as she does.
The catch? He is the leader of the local Republican Party. As she reconciles her beliefs with her heart, the social and cultural debate rages around her and her family.
Starring Ruby Dee (American Gangster), and Loretta Devine (Jumping the Broom) as Aretha’s loving and outspoken step-mother and grandmother, this tale of new-age forbidden love, will be available by Video on Demand (VOD) from Spetember 1, 2011 and will hit DVDs on September 20.
