Dharam Sankat Mein, the official Hindi adaptation of British satire “The Infidel”, which stars a powerhouse trio of Paresh Rawal, Annu Kapoor and Naseeruddin Shah, is set to hit the screens on 10th April, 2015.
Presented and produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures, produced by Sajjad Chunawala and Shariq Patel from Trigno Media and directed by Fuwad Khan, it is the first time a Bollywood movie has 3 National Film Award winners in its main cast.
This rip-roaring social satire is helmed by versatile actor Paresh Rawal aka Dharampal, a man caught in the midst of an identity crisis. His entire belief system is shaken when documents from his departed mother’s locker reveal to him that instead of being what he believed himself to be – an average upper middle class Hindu – he was actually born to a Muslim family! A hilarious turn of events further leads to Dharampal truly being in Sankat.
With Naseeruddin Shah playing the role of a Hindu religious leader ‘Neelanand Baba’ and Annu Kapoor playing the role of Dharampal’s Muslim neighbour Mehmood, the three stellar actors seem geared to make the plot even more comical and funny.
Elaborating on the film Paresh Rawal said, ‘I always love doing comedy and a satirical comedy just gives an actor a wider berth to experiment with his acting. We have the perfect ensemble cast to make this movie a hit and we hope the audiences like what we have coming up for them.’
Dharam Sankat Mein has been creating great stir among the audience with its teasers, film posters and promotional campaign called ‘Neel Dharma’. The movie aims to spread the message of humanity through a rib-tickling story.
Dharam Sankat Mein is presented and produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and produced by Sajjad Chunawala, and Shariq Patel from Trigno Media, releases by Blue Sapphire Films in association with Wize Mindz Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. in the UK on 10th April 2015.
