Award-winning film Newton, starring the talented Rajkummar Rao, is set to hit the screens on August 18. Filmmaker Hansal Mehta tweeted on Tuesday (June 13), "And the highly acclaimed Newton releases on August 18. With another stellar act by the unstoppable Rajkummar Rao." Mehta also posted the film's poster, in which Rajkummar, shielded by a helmet and a military vest, is seen running with an Electronic Voting Machine. The poster's caption reads Seedha Aadmi Ulti Duniya, which we feel is really intriguing. (ALSO READ - Raj Kummar Rao's Newton selected for the world competition section at the Tribeca Film Festival)
Hansal Mehta, who has worked with Rajkummar on films like Shahid and Aligarh, clarified that he is just an admirer and well wisher of Newton, directed by Amit Masurkar. The film is produced by Manish Mundra of Drishyam Films, the company best known for backing critically-acclaimed projects such as Masaan and Umrika. Newton won the Art Cinema Award for the Forum section at the 67th Berlin International Film Festival, where it had its world premiere. For those of you who don't know, it revolves around a clerk placed on election duty in a conflict-ridden area of Chhattisgarh. But what happens next is something we will have to wait and watch.
