If news is to be believed filmmaker Anubhav Sinha has taken on the likes of Rishi Kapoor, Taapsee Pannu and Prateik Babbar to star in his forthcoming thriller ‘Mulk’.

The film is said to be based on true events, revolving around a small town family struggling to reclaim their honour and status. Talking about the film, DNA reports Sinha expressing, “I am doing a thriller after 10 years and this will be quite different from what I have attempted in the past. I’m returning to my roots after so many years. It is my way of giving back to my hometown and it feels emotionally satisfactory.”

Jointly written by Mustaq Shiekh, reports suggest that the film will be shot in Lucknow and Varanasi. When talking to the media about the project, Shiek explained, “Some stories resonate with your soul. They are heartfelt yet thrilling. ‘Mulk’ is one such story that has a pulsating vibe to it and will have you completely captivated.”

Set to go on floors in October, ‘Mulk’ is scheduled to release in 2018.
