Did You Know?
'A Secret Handshake' screenplay was first written by producers Sukhi Pabla and Christopher Hazelett and was titled 'An Autumn In Paradise'. After years of trying to find funding and to lock in a big name for the lead roles, they had no luck. So they got together and had writer/director Harsha Gijre rewrite the screenplay to fit a smaller budget of less than half a million dollars. And was born 'A Secret Handshake'. See more
