Irada, star­ring vet­eran ac­tor Naseerud­din Shah and ac­tors Ar­shad Warsi, Divya Dutta, Sa­garika Ghatge and Sharad Kelkar, aims to ad­dress the is­sue of ecoter­ror­ism in In­dia. Di­rected by debu­tant di­rec­tor Apar­naa Singh and pro­duced by Prince Soni and Fal­guni Pa­tel, the plot of the film re­volves around a mys­te­ri­ous bomb blast in a busi­ness ty­coon’s (Sharad Kelkar) fac­tory. This leads to the hir­ing of an NIA of­fi­cer played by Ar­shad Warsi. He meets an ex-army man (Naseerud­din Shah) seek­ing re­venge for his dead daugh­ter, and a jour­nal­ist (Sa­garika Ghatge) de­mand­ing jus­tice for her slain boyfriend.

Warsi and Shah have worked to­gether in the past and agree that they love col­lab­o­rat­ing. “I love work­ing with Naseer Saab. He’s one-ofa-kind — he doesn’t act, he be­comes the char­ac­ter,” says Ar­shad. “Naseer Saab is hon­est with his work on screen and with his words off screen,” says Warsi, adding, “Irada is a con­tent-driven film with a strong and sen­si­tive sub­ject. It is a must­watch for ev­ery­one. You need to pay at­ten­tion and watch closely, oth­er­wise you’ll miss out on all the sub­tle de­tails and clues.”

Shah, who is all praise for Warsi’s tal­ent, also agrees that the film is a must-watch. “Irada’s core is the char­ac­ters with lay­ers and se­crets, who make the film en­gag­ing,” the th­es­pian adds. “The film is spe­cial be­cause it is real, and it’s Apar­naa’s first film as a writer-di­rec­tor. This is a very hard-hit­ting sub­ject.”

An Irada En­ter­tain­ment LLP pro­duc­tion, pro­duced by Fal­guni Pa­tel and Prince Soni, di­rected by Apar­naa Singh, Irada is all set to re­lease to­day.
