Hansal Mehta’s thriller ‘Faraaz’ based on Dhaka cafe attack to release on Feb 3

Mumbai, Jan 9 (IANS) Director Hansal Mehta is back with another hard-hitting story titled ‘Faraaz’, based on the real-life terrorist attack that ravaged a Dhaka cafe in 2016, which will release on the big screen on February 3.

Filmmaker Hansal Mehta said, “To me, Faraaz is a story of our polarised times. Through the one event that rocked Dhaka – the 2016 attack on the Holey Artisan cafe – I’ve tried to explore the broader theme of violence and what really drives young, vulnerable minds towards it.”

“Designed as a nail-biting thriller that plays out over one tense night, my attempt with Faraaz has also been to shine a light on the immense courage and humanity that it takes to stand up against violence. Because standing up against bigotry and the carnage it triggers is the only way to defeat it.”

The film stars Zahan Kapoor, Aditya Rawal, Juhi Babbar, Aamir Ali, Sachin Lalwani, Palak Lalwani and Reshham Sahaani in the cast.

Producer Anubhav Sinha added: “Faraaz is a story that needs to be told and Hansal has done justice to the story of the catastrophic event that shocked the world. It is a story about a hero who made a brave choice and celebrates the spirit of a young boy who stood tall for his loved ones.”

Producer Bhushan Kumar said, “Faraaz will surely strike a chord in your heart as it celebrates bravery, friendship, and humanity at its core. I am glad to be associated with such an important film.”

The film is directed by Hansal Mehta, and produced by Bhushan Kumar, Anubhav Sinha, Sahil Saigal, Sakshi Bhatt and Mazahir M. The film is jointly produced by T-Series and Benaras Media works in association with Mahana Films.
