London, July 15 : A Pakistani film that tell the real-life story of a boy who strays into the Indian side of the border by mistake and is put behind bars, will be released simultaneously in India and Pakistan.

Titled 'Ramchand Pakistani', the films has already won the praise of critics on both sides of the border.
Indian actor Nandita Das, who also stars in the movie, said that it would certainly help Indians know more about Pakistan.

Producer Javed Jabbar, a former cabinet minister in Pakistan, insisted that the movie was not about politics, but about the plight of the child and his parents.
