‘Manto’ Trailer: Nawaz highlights the freedom of expression this Independence Day

The much-awaited trailer of ‘Manto’ starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead is here. The makers of the film choose to release the trailer on the 71st Independence day when the clock struck 12. The reason for releasing the trailer on this auspicious day is that it deals with freedom of expression.

Nawazuddin’s act as Saadat Hasan Manto will surely blow your mind and the other stars make sure to lend the perfect support to Nawaz in the trailer.

The film traces Manto’s years as a writer in Bombay, his move to Pakistan and the impact of India’s Partition on his life and work. The cast includes Rasika Dugal as Manto’s wife Safia, alongside Rishi Kapoor, Divya Dutta, Tahir Raj Bhasin and Paresh Rawal.

‘Manto’ was premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May and it opened to a packed house. Co-produced by HP Studios, Filmstoc and Viacom18 Motion Pictures, the film is all set to be released in India later this year.

The film will hit theaters on 21st September.
