It’s the first time that ace actor Rajkummar Rao, who already had us with Shahid, Aligarh and Trapped, is all set to put his most formidable avatar on silverscreen with Omerta. In the Hansal Mehta-directorial, the actor is essaying the role of a British terrorist with Pakistani descent, Saeed Omar Shaikh. Just when you thought you can’t be impressed with Omerta, the makers dropped another trailer just a couple of weeks ahead of its official release.
The three-minute video shows how Omar Shaikh executes his sinister planning, while beheading journalists and carrying out attacks in the name of Jihad. There are shots of the unfortunate 9/11 incident which killed thousands of people, including some Indians as well.

Shaikh, who seems to be sane and charming to the world, has some of the most ominous plans going thought his mind. He claims to be the saviour of the world, while shedding the blood of many innocent lives. By watching the trailer, your hatred for terrorism and its mechanism will grow by multiple folds.
Here’s the trailer.
Omerta was earlier scheduled to release on April 20, clashing with Beyond The Clouds and Nanu Ki Jaanu. But due to some issues with the censor board, the release had to be pushed further to May 4. Now the Rajkummar Rao-starrer will be facing Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor’s 102 Not Out at the theatres.
