Acclaimed Indian filmmaker Hansal Mehta, who has some brilliant films to his credit, is currently awaiting the release of his next directorial venture, Omerta, starring Rajkummar Rao in the lead role. The film still has one full week of its theatrical release, but Mehta has already signed Rajkummar Rao for his next film.
Titled Swagat Hai, the film will mark the fifth association of the director-actor duo after Shahid, CityLights, Aligarh and the yet-to-be-released Omerta.
Confirming the same, the National award-winning director says, “Yes, we are doing this film together and looking forward to it. Swagat Hain makes a strong statement about freedom of expression, hypocrisy and exploitation of women at the workplace and in personal spaces. It is a little early to reveal any more details on the subject as we are still developing the script. All I can say is that it is inspired by true-life incidents and we are doing something completely new this time.”
The director will start work on the prep right after the release of Omerta on 4th May. The film will be shot in Mumbai.
