Qissa-e Parsi: The Parsi Story

Divya Cowasji, co-director of the film stated: “I am a documentary filmmaker and photographer based out of Mumbai, Delhi and Mhow. My co-director Shilpi and I are delighted to present our new documentary project in collaboration with the Public Service Broadcasting Trust and the Public Diplomacy Division of the Ministry of External Affairs”.

This documentary is researching the historical backdrop of the group of Parsi, their association with the Indian state and affiliation and with the city of Mumbai. It endeavors to comprehend the religious beliefs of the Zoroastrian, and the theory to live, laugh and love, which is the foundation of the Parsi lifestyle, and what makes it so endearingly special and darling.

As the group is tormented with tensions over its diminishing numbers, it takes a gander at current civil arguments on issues of inter-faith marriage. All in all, it is an endeavor to comprehend a group which has dependably been small in number, yet, impressive from the cultural and social aspect.
