Filmmaker Anubhav Sinha, who is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Mulk, featuring actors Taapsee Pannu and Rishi Kapoor, stated that Shoojit Sircar loved the narrative of the movie.
Sinha makes it a point to narrate all his films to his industry friends for their opinions before he starts shooting and casting for a film. He arranged for a special reading session for Sircar for "Mulk".
"Shoojit actually said this was one of his favourite films of mine," Sinha said in a statement to IANS.
"He loved the narrative so much that he requested me not to reconsider the film," he added.
The teaser of the film shows Rishi Kapoor playing a character called Murad Ali Mohammed, accused of treason. Actress Taapsee Pannu plays his defence lawyer Aarti Mohammed.
The film is based on a series of true events, and is slated to hit the screens on August 3.
Presented by Kamal Mukut and Soham Rockstar Entertainment, a Benaras Media Works production, the film is produced by Deepak Mukut and Sinha.
