Af­ter his out­stand­ing per­for­mance in Bareilly Ki Barfi, Na­tional Award-win­ning ac­tor Ra­jkum­mar Rao (above, cen­tre) is now set to play a rookie clerk, named New­ton Ku­mar, in a film ti­tled New­ton.

This dark com­edy, helmed by Amit V. Ma­surkar, re­volves around a clerk who is de­puted to con­duct elec­tions in an iso­lated jun­gle in Ch­hat­tis­garh, brav­ing the per­va­sive fear of a Maoist at­tack. The trailer of the film will be out to­day on Eros Now.

The film has an en­sem­ble cast that also in­cludes Pankaj Tri­pathi of Masaan fame, An­jali Patil, and Raghu­bir Ya­dav. Talk­ing about work­ing with his co-stars, Ra­jkum­mar says, “It was great col­lab­o­rat­ing with such fine ac­tors like Raghu­bir Ya­dav sir and Pankaj Tri­pathi. Amit is such a tal­ented di­rec­tor and he has made a very spe­cial film for all of us.”

Man­ish Mun­dra, pro­ducer of the film and founder of Dr­ishyam Films, says, “I was blown away by the heart­warm­ing way in which Amit has wo­ven the nar­ra­tive of this great In­dian democ­racy, with equal parts pathos and hu­mour.”

Aanand L. Rai, who is pre­sent­ing the film, says, “De­spite be­ing the largest democ­racy in the world, In­dia has a chaotic and elab­o­rate elec­tion process. For me, New­ton has not just been an en­ter­tain­ing watch but also a learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. This film will def­i­nitely leave the au­di­ence with a deep thought and a big smile.”

Pre­sented by Eros In­ter­na­tional and Aanand L. Rai ,a Dr­ishyam Pro­duc­tion in as­so­ci­a­tion with Colour Yel­low Pro­duc­tions, New­ton will re­lease on Septem­ber 22, 2017
