Iqbal Theba To Star In Nardeep Khurmi’s ‘Land Of Gold’; Katrina Bowden Joins Crime Drama ‘Dead Wrong’

Exclusive: SAG Award winner Iqbal Theba has signed on to star in Land of Gold, a drama from writer-director Nardeep Khurmi, which is currently in production in Oklahoma.

Pic centers on Kiren, a first-generation Punjabi trucker and anxious father-to-be, who stumbles across a 10-year-old undocumented Mexican-American named Elena during a cross-country trip. As Kiren helps her to find her way home, the pair connect over a shared history and evolving expectations of what family truly is.

Theba will play Kiren’s father, Gurinder, who is older than his years, losing his memory and dreaming of better days.

Land of Gold was the winner of the $1 million dollar Grand Prize at the 2021 Tribeca/AT&T Untold Stories pitch competition, and will premiere at the 2022 Tribeca Film Festival, subsequently being distributed by Warner Bros. and HBO Max.
