A fast-paced film that unfolds in Delhi amidst the nexus of cops,politicians and the mafia. ACP Hanumant Singh (Nana Patekar) of the Delhi Crime Branch is a respected,yet feared police officer. Singh mentors Mohit (Mohit Ahlawat),a new officer in his team,but their ideologies cross paths when a notorious gangster,Bunty Bhaiya (Anurag Kashyap),enters the fray.

The film digs deep into Singh’s and Bhaiya’s psyches. Who dons a mask and who emerges a winner form the crux of the plot. The film is Anurag Kashyap’s first full-fledged role. The director made cameo appearances in I Am,Tera Kya Hoga Johny,Luck By Chance and Black Friday.

The buzz

Nana Patekar’s character in the film has been modelled on real-life encounter specialist,late Rajbir Singh,with a record 56 encounter killings to his credit. Anurag Kashyap,who had been fortunate to meet Singh,helped Nana get into the skin of his character.

*It was director Tigmanshu Dhulia’s decision to get good friend Anurag Kashyap to act in Shagird. In return,Anurag asked Tigmanshu to act in his forthcoming film Gangs Of Wasseypur
