Tell us about FIR?

It is related to a real incident but we took all care to ensure that it does not take any sides and be partial to any community. It will only speak facts.

Manu Anand met me through some common friends in the industry. He worked with Gautam Menon. He narrated an action-packed story first. Anything else? I asked. He told me the line of FIR and I immediately said Okay. He did not think I would give a nod to such a sensitive story. He was surprised when I said okay. It was supposed to be produced by a friend but later, I came on board as a producer as well. I am sure this film will be a big hit for me
