Hansal Mehtas next Faraaz is based on this horrific real life event

Filmmaker Hansal Mehta is all set to hit it big with his next project. Teaming up with biggies like Anubahv Sinha and Bhushan Kumar, Hansal is all set to tell the horrific story of Artisan Cafe attack in Dhaka. In this dreadful real life event, five militants wrecked havoc in a cage in Dhaka and held 50 people hostages for around 12 hours.

Popular actors like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Ayushmann Khurrana, and Kartik Aaryan to Rajkummar Rao, Emraan Hashmi, Pratik Gandhi to Taapsee Pannu and Mohit Suri were super excited as the makers had a 12 hour countdown before the poster release. Sharing the poster on Twitter, Hansal Mehta wrote, "In the face of violent adversity, humanity wins!
Excited to collaborate with @anubhavsinha and #BhushanKumar on our labour of love #FARAAZ.
Featuring an exciting ensemble including the gifted @zahankapoor and @adityarawal1 on screen!"

Talking about the film, Hansal Mehta said in a statement, "Faraaz is a story of deep humanity and its ultimate triumph in the face of violent adversity. While it is based on true events, it is also a deeply personal story that I’ve held close to my heart for nearly 3 years. I’m glad Anubhav and Bhushanji are backing this story and enabling me to make this thrilling drama exactly the way I envisaged. It is exciting to collaborate with such diverse young talent on this labour of love. I can’t wait for the world to see this film."
