The film also stars Kriti Sanon and Sanjay Dutt in the lead roles.
As for India’s Most Wanted, the action thriller is directed by Raj Kumar Gupta, the film is about tracking a terrorist in a secret mission and arresting him without firing bullets. This film also deals with a journey of Prabhat Kapoor's (played by Arjun Kapoor) life of action adventure.
India's Most Wanted is inspired by the arrest of proscribed organisation Indian Mujahideen (IM) terrorist Abdul Subhan Qureshi, also referred to as India's Osama Bin Laden, in January 2018 by Delhi Police.
The IMW opens in theatres on 24th May 2019.
