The trailer of Hansal Mehta’s latest film, Faraaz was launched on Monday. The action-thriller is produced by Anubhav Sinha, and will release in theatres on February 3.
The spine-chilling trailer narrates the attack on Holey Artisan cafe in Dhaka and the rescue operations that followed.
The film will be the launch of Shashi Kapoor’s grandson, Zahaan. The film also stars Aditya Rawal, son of actors Paresh Rawal and Swaroop Rawal, Aamir Ali and Juhi Babbar Soni. The film will also feature debutants such as Sachin Lalwani, Jatin Sareen, Ninad Bhatt, Harshal Pawar, Palak Lalwani and Ressham Sahaani.

Sharing the trailer on social media, Hansla Mehta shared, “Standing tall. Presenting the #Faraaz trailer. Releasing with pride on February 3.”
Producer Anubhan Sinha shared, “When the nation was terrified, he became a light of hope. With much pride, we bring you the #FaraazTrailer. #Faraaz in cinemas on 3rd FEB 2023”
Earlier this month in a press release, filmmaker Hansal Mehta said, “To me, Faraaz is a story of our polarised times. Through the one event that rocked Dhaka – the 2016 attack on the Holey Artisan cafe – I’ve tried to explore the broader theme of violence and what really drives young, vulnerable minds towards it.”
“Designed as a nail-biting thriller that plays out over one tense night, my attempt with Faraaz has also been to shine a light on the immense courage and humanity that it takes to stand up against violence. Because standing up against bigotry and the carnage it triggers is the only way to defeat it.”
Faraaz had its world premiere at the 2022 edition of the BFI London Film Festival.
