ZEE Cinema will be premiering the action thriller ‘Raja Natwarlal’ next month, BizAsia can confirm.
The film starring Emraan Hashmi, is laced with elements of crime and dark humour, featuring Paresh Rawal, Kay Kay Menon, Deepak Tijori and newbie Humaima Malick in pivotal roles. It is directed by Kunal Deshmukh of ��Jannat�۪ fame and produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur.
Commenting on the film, Hashmi said, ���I am very happy to have starred in a full-fledged, entertaining, commercial film. I am coming back to the basics with this commercial masala, entertainer which I feel that my audience somehow was missing out on for a long time. I never thought I�۪d do a con film ever because I find them very superficial, but this one has a heart, a soul and emotions flowing in. There is a dramatic reason for the character to play a scamster and that�۪s what I liked most. I�۪m sure my viewers will like it too.�
The movie centres on Raja, a small-time conman who successfully tricks people out of their money with his partner in crime Raghav. Raja�۪s love interest Ziya, a bar girl, pushes him towards building a more comfortable and hassle-free life. Thus Raja decides to target Don Varda Yadav and his men for one final con job that will earn him the big bucks and a settled life with Ziya. Though the con is pulled off successfully, Varda Yadav gets Raghav killed. Raja then seeks revenge with the help of a seasoned crook Yogi.
‘Raja Natwarlal’ will premiere on ZEE Cinema UK on Saturday 28th March at 21:15.
