The entire star cast of the family entertainment drama, Mulk (Taapsee Pannu, Rishi Kapoor, Prateik Babbar, Rajat Kapoor, Nina Gupta) including the director and the producer Anubhav Sinha were in Delhi for the promotion and premier of their latest movie, Mulk.

Director Anubhav Sinha states, that Mulk is a courtroom drama movie, a story of a family that must protect its pride.

“The film tries to table questions that we don’t address in the open. We like to call it a social thriller. It is not political. It is a story of you and me, about us. Our conduct. Our prejudices. Our preconceived notions- about each other. We don’t talk to each other about the problems we have with each other. But I guess everything in life is political. The film doesn’t claim to give answers, but it is not impossible to find some in there. It is a story of our times. It does not try to teach you anything, it just tells you an engaging story about the people of India.” Anubhav added.

The trailer of the film has received positive feedback. Though not directly, but Anubhav tries to show a clear image of the society reacting to the social issues like communalism and mob lynching.

Prateik had a breath-taking experience working with all the other talented actors. Though he found it challenging but he said he has tried to give his best and it was a wonderful opportunity or him and his career

According to Taapsee, the role played by her was more challenging than the role of a victim she played in in Pink. Taapsee was stimulated by Amitabh Bachchan’s role in Pink and has tried her best to match the expectations of the audience. Rishi Kapoor, though not inspired by any other actor’s role found the script to be a relevant story and accepted it as a challenge.

Prateik had a breath-taking experience working with all the other talented actors. Though he found it challenging but he said he has tried to give his best and it was a wonderful opportunity or him and his career. In the same context, Prachi also shared with media that she had a very different experience wearing hijab and playing a Muslim girl.

Rishi’s interpretation of the word ‘Mulk’ is the conscience of every being who belongs to one’s country and nation regardless of his religion. The movie is set to release on August 3 and has already created a buzz.
