Whenever Hansal Mehta and Rajkummar Rao have teamed up, they have spelt magic on the big screen with their unique way of storytelling. The director-actor duo team up for Omertà - a film on Omar Shaikh, one of the most dreaded terrorists of modern times.
The new trailer shows how Omar Shaikh was allegedly aided by Pakistan. The film has some of the major terror attacks of the world as the story's backdrop.
One scene where Rajkummar Rao as Omar Shaikh is talking to the captured Daniel Pearl is especially spine-chilling as Rao mouths the words 'I am the saviour' giving a peek into the mind of a maniac.
Hansal Mehta says, "The audiences have been waiting very patiently. And since we are now releasing the film on May 4, we decided to increase the anticipation with another glimpse into the dark world of Pak sponsored terror with the second trailer."
Producer Nahid Khan adds, "It is important for Indian audiences to understand why the story of Omar Shaikh matters to us. He has been the evil force behind some major terror attacks that have hit Indian soil. The second trailer shows that India link to Omar Shaikh."
The film which was earlier scheduled to release on 20th April will now release on 4th May.
