After giving two back-to-back hits last year, director Agnidev Chatterjee is now ready to direct a hard-hitting Hindi film with Rituparna and Karron in the lead

Tollywood director Agnidev Chatterjee — known  for taking up controversies like the Park Street rape case and the Maharashtra education scam in his films — is now ready to direct a Hindi movie titled The Truth Behind Article 161

The film deals with the only real-life case of pardon by a Governor, a power that is explained in Article 161 of the Indian Constitution. The film stars Rituparna Sengupta and Karron Mallik in pivotal roles.

"On May 12, 1978, a brilliant 23-year-old student was arrested for homicide, convicted and imprisoned. Thus began a long legal battle to prove his innocence. In 1999, after serving his sentence, he was pardoned by the Governor and absolved of his crime. Today this man, having endured so much of humiliation, is leading a life of dignity and honour. He wants his story to be told so that people have a comprehensive understanding of Article 161
