Inspired by true events, Tehran marks the directorial debut of well-known ad filmmaker Arun Gopalan. The film is written by Ritesh Shah and Ashish Prakash Verma.

“If you are invested in the Russia-Ukraine crisis, wonder what China is doing, what Iran is doing, where does Palestine fit in this whole thing, Tehran is about all of this. It is a stunning film,” the actor added.

Abraham said the film, at its core, will be a love story, but unlike anything the audience has seen before. “It is one of the most unique concepts I have read, where you will scratch your head and think, ‘What were you thinking when you decided to do this?’ But I want to because it is something never seen before. It is a crazy, mind-bending space,” he said.

The actor continued, “But my job is to simplify it as a maker and present it to the audience. At the core of it, the film is a love story and I have not done a love story that is different, in a long time. I have miserably failed when I have done a regular love story.”
