Rajkummar Rao starrer biographical crime drama film ‘Omerta’ will stream on ZEE5 from July 25. The film has been directed by National Award-winning filmmaker Hansal Mehta.
It narrates the life of terrorist Omar Said Sheikh, who was convicted for abduction and murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl.
Originally released theatrically in May 2018, Omerta took two years to reach a streaming platform. It also features Rajesh Tailang and Satwant Kaur in pivotal roles.
Rao said in a statement:
“Playing Omar in Omertà is certainly one of the most challenging characters I have ever played on screen. It drained me completely both emotionally and physically. I could never have imagined that playing this part would mentally take me to such dark places. It’s a journey of one of the most deadliest terrorists of our times and Hansal Sir pushed me out of my boundaries to explore. It is great that ZEE5 will premiere this film digitally, which the world will be able to see.”
