Stars from the Midlands bhangra music scene united in Birmingham this week for the premiere of a film that looks at the issue of the 1984 anti-Sikh troubles in India, and the families caught up in the resulting conflicts.

Birmingham-based singers/producers Sukhshinda Shinda, Jazzy B, Dr Zeus, B21 and many more were among the high-profile stars attending the "Punjab 1984" gathering at Star City in Birmingham.
