The director (Tariq) explained the character to me of this Muslim father, who lives Alone and his son lives in the US. He keeps a Hindu boy in his house as a tenant,” he said. He also said that the movie has a sensitive message for people.

And according to Bhatt, Tariq has treated this relationship very sensitively, especially in a city where people reach the point of giving up on life and commit suicide.

Bhatt further said, “Suicide is 21st century’s self-generated disease. The dark side of human nature. We are our biggest enemies. This plot has been successfully handled. This is a very unusual plot and handled beautifully. The filmmakers doesn’t make films like this, they just cannot get over the Entertainment genre.”

“Keep on living and struggling with life. I liked that message a lot because suicide is such a reality which society hasn’t dealt with. I think we are in danger from ourselves, so I liked this core as well,” says Bhatt.

When asked about working with a newcomer, he said, “He is such a sensitive child. I liked him the moment I saw him. I really wanted to hug him the moment I see him. He is such a sweet child.”

Mahesh Bhatt is playing a painter in the film, which also features Kay Kay Menon, Nikhil Ratnaparkhi, Neha Khan and Alisha Khan in the lead roles. ‘The Dark Side Of Life: Mumbai City’ is slated to release on 29th Sept,2018.
