Bollywood actress and filmmaker Nandita Das, who has now come up with her new directorial venture Manto, recently talked about her film mentioning how she was not trying to put Sadat Hassan Manto, the author and playwright, on a pedestal but simply narrating a story. Apart from him, the cast includes Rasika Dugal, Divya Dutta and Tahir Raj Bhasin in pivotal roles. But I think while there have been a lot of rejections, there have also been a lot of things which miraculously worked. She added, " It's a very universal story.
According to Das, "Manto is a story of a human being who happens to be a writer". There are many stories that reflect the realities of the world we live in and I believe it's very important to showcase them and bring that message to more people in a way that they can connect with. "I think it's a film where the audience will be able to take home something and everyone will relate to his personality", she was quoted by IANS as saying. He also explained how he could relate to the character and siad, " I am hopeful people will relate to him, especially those who believe in speaking truth, no matter how hard it maybe". "We are not offending anybody". A release date for India has not yet been announced.
