The film is based on families that forgave the culprits who offended them and will give you an insight into the lives of real people.  Rubaru Roshni showcases three impactful tales of forgiveness. Three families, who lost their loved ones because of another human, talk about their suffering. Instead of getting the culprit punished and seeking revenge, the families decide to forgive them. In the documentary, they talk about what made them take the big decision, and how it helped them get closure. Rubaru Roshni was telecasted on Star Plus and Hotstar on January 26 at 11 am. It is indeed an applauding moment of Amir Khan’s career.

Watch the movie on Hotstar:
