Omerta is Rajkummar Rao and Hansal Mehta's fourth film together
Omerta is expected to release in September
Rajkummar Rao, who plays the role of terrorist Omar Saeed Sheikh, in upcoming film Omerta, said that the Hansal Mehta-directed film was "tough" to shoot. "I think it got a great response. I feel it's a one-of-its-kind and a very unique film. It was a very tough film for us to make but I am glad about the kind of reactions we are getting for the film," IANS quoted Rajkummar Rao as saying. Hansal Mehta earlier told IANS that he purchased the "actual footage" of several terrorist attacks, for which Omar Saeed Sheikh has been blamed, to maintain the film's authenticity. The team of Omerta also filmed in real locations across London and India.
Omerta is Rajkummar Rao's fourth film with Hansal Mehta after Shahid, Aligarh and CityLights. Hansal Mehta has also produced web-series Bose: Dead/Alive, starring Rajkummar Rao.
Rajkummar is also co-starring with Shraddha Kapoor in Stree and the actor said: "It is shaping up pretty well and I am very excited for the release now." Of his co-star, Rajkummar said that Shraddha is "hardworking and dedicated" and that she has been "very good."
