Omerta Trailer: Rajkumar Rao Playing Terrorist Omar proves his talent once again

Rajkumar Rao is a talented actor and one of the most promising actors in Bollywood. He has worked in various films like Trapped and Newton and always proved his skills and importance in the Bollywood industry.

Rajkumar’s upcoming film Omerta has just dropped online and once again Rajkummar Rao has proved that he can take any role and nail it to the perfection. Based on the real-life story of British terrorist of Pakistani descent Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, this Hansal Mehta directorial will give chills to your soul. Have a look at the trailer.

In the trailer, we witness Rajkummar making discrete phone calls, working to make himself physically fit and disguising himself under the name of Rohit Verma in front of the police.

The movie is shot around London and India and it features some of the terror attacks the world had witnessed in the past including the 1994 Delhi Kidnappings, the 9/11 World Trade Centre attack and the 26/11 Mumbai terror strike.

“Omerta is among the most researched films that I have worked on till date. We actually visited some of the places frequented by Omar in London 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. There will be this moment of shock and silence as the end credits roll,” said Rajkummar Rao at the Omerta trailer launch.

Director Hansal Mehta said, “Omerta takes a look at this complex paradox of a man called Omar Saeed Sheikh. It was a difficult subject to choose and a challenge to make. However, with an actor like Rajkummar, no challenge seems insurmountable and this was the ideal film to hurtle us out of our comfort zone to make something that is uncomfortable. But that is the burden of truth – it is uncomfortable and it must be faced. 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.”

The thriller film is slated to hit the theatres on April 20 this year. We are surely excited to see Rajkumar in action again after his performance in Newton.
