However, the highlight of the day was an open house that Team D-Day had with the enthusiastic students of Symbiosis’ Viman Nagar Campus. Apart from them sharing a lighter moment with the students where Arjun and Irrfan gave the audience a live demo of the of the high impact hand-to-hand action featured in the movie, they also surprised the students by screening their favourite scenes from the movie.

The movie stars Rishi Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Irrfan Khan, Aakash Dahiya, Huma Qureshi, Shruti Haasan, Chandan Roy Sanyal and Sree Swara Dubey.
“The idea of capturing India’s most wanted man in his own playing ground is a question every Indian has asked at least once in their life. D-Day is our attempt at bringing this very idea alive on screen. From the plot to the performances, every aspect of this movie is real, gritty and hard hitting, but more importantly, it’s honest. The set action pieces in the film and the riveting musical score by Shankar Ehsaan Loy add several layers to the extraordinary, sweeping and rugged landscape that the film endeavors to capture. D-Day is by far the most difficult film I’ve made,” commented Nikhil Advani on his vision for the movie.
Co-produced by Essel Vision Productions (Nittin Keni), the film’s music is composed by Shankar Ehsaan Loy with lyrics by Niranjan Iyengar. The film is written by Nikhil Advani, Ritesh Shah & Suresh Nair and dialogues by Ritesh Shah and Niranjan Iyengar. The director of photography- Tushar Kanti Ray brilliantly captures the mood & scale of the film while the globally renowned action director duo of Tom Struthers and John Street (duo behind action of Dark Knight Rises, Inception, etc) herald the action.
D-DAY releases worldwide in cinemas on 19th July 2013.
