Hansal Mehta released another still of Rajkummar Rao from Omerta. This look is a long way off from the mafia code of silence we initially saw the film as.

Omerta, hansal mehta, rajkumar rao Omerta marks fourth project of Rajkummar Rao and Hansal Mehta.

Hansal Mehta’s directorial Omerta starring Rajkummar Rao has come out and it appears that this actor-director duo has again rustled up something extremely exciting. After releasing a picture of Rajkummar Rao dressed in a suit earlier, this new look reveals a different aspect of his personality.

The actor can be seen offering namaaz in the picture but what grabs our attention is the wall behind him. From the date ‘9/11’ and the to-do task of ‘Kidnapping an American,’ it all points to terrorism being a part of the film.

The Aligarh director took to Twitter to release the look. He wrote, “Produced by Swiss Entertainment & Karma Features, #Omerta has @RajkummarRao playing yet another real life character.” Talking about the journey of Omerta, Hansal wrote, “On location #Omerta. This has been a grueling but gratifying journey. It is a pertinent film about our times.”

As soon as the director posted a picture, speculation started about Omerta’s story line. Someone asked if the film is based on Mario Puzo’s novel with the same name but Hansal denied any resemblance to the novel.
