New Delhi, Sep 13 : Acclaimed actor Rajkummar Rao, who was overwhelmed with the response to “Omerta” at the movie’s world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), says the film “Omerta” can be disturbing for some viewers due to the dark reality it exposes, says bollywood actor “Rajkummar Rao”.

The film “Omerta” tells the story of Pakistani-origin terrorist Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh.

Rajkummar, who was at TIFF for the movie’s premiere, told IANS via social media: “It was an overwhelming experience. It was our world premiere and it opened to a packed house in Toronto. Viewers were quite emotional and stunned after the film.

“It can be a disturbing watch for some. It shows you the dark reality of a dangerous world.”

“Omerta” marks the return of the formidable actor-director team of Hansal Mehta and Rajkummar, who have worked together in films like “Aligarh”, “CityLights” and “Shahid”.

Mehta is also the creative director of “Bose Dead/Alive”, an upcoming web series featuring Rajkummar as Subhas Chandra Bose. (IANS)

“And it’s five years of ‘Shahid’. A very special film which gave me and my dearest Hansal Mehta sir, our first National Award, and got me my first Filmfare Award. Thanks for all the unconditional love. As Shahid says, ‘Waqt lagta hai par ho jaata hai’ (It will take time but it will happen for sure). More power to all our real life heroes,” the 34-year-old actor wrote on Twitter.
