Precious Bazaar – Love is not for Sale

PRECIOUS BAZAAR is the story of Suhani and Roshni, young women from two different worlds who become friends and learn that love cannot be bought or sold. Set in the hustle and bustle of a thriving west London environment, mujrewalis (courtesans) travel with their Madame to various underground clubs where the girls have to please all – at a price.

Suhani, a promising reporter, goes undercover to expose this thriving prostitution racket. Disguised as a dancer she enters this seedy world, where she meets Roshni, a young woman who has given up on her dreams. When the local MPs son falls in love with Roshni, she finds herself returning his affection. Can Suhani help her break free from Madame’s grip and live happily ever after?
