Speaking to the media at the trailer launch, Rajkummar Rao said that this is one of the most researched films he has worked on till date. He said that the cast and crew visited some of the places where Omar stayed during his transformation from an LSE graduation student to becoming this deadly terrorist.
“I needed to feel and touch this man’s past – to ingest him. It was not an easy journey for me to take. With Omerta and Hansal Sir, we have a combination that will probably leave you stunned,” he said.
Meanwhile, the director of the movie, Hansal Mehta said that it was a difficult subject to choose but added that an actor like Rajkummar makes any job easy. “The film looks at what it means to be a fundamentalist and for someone to pick up a gun with the intent of killing in return for an afterlife in Paradise. I want to leave the viewer with a sense of awe, disgust, hate, surprise and let them examine the ramifications of these events on their lives today,” he added.
