The film also stars Shantanu Maheshwari, Vijay Raaz, Seema Pahwa and others. Ajay Devgn has a pivotal role of Rahim Lala in the movie, a fierce man who is true to his principles and morals.
Before the film arrived in theatres, a petition was filed against it, asking for a stay on it's release. The Supreme Court dismissed the plea and observed that the film certificate issued by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) prima facie showed that the film was not defamatory.
"In any case, whether the story is true or incorrect would have to be decided by the Court upon examination of the evidence. The film certificate issued by the CBFC prima facie shows that the film is not defamatory. Prima facie, it appears that the movie is an artistic expression within the parameters of the law," the Court said.
