Sinha makes it a point to narrate all his films to his industry friends for their opinions before he starts shooting and casting for a film. He arranged for a special reading session for Sircar for "Mulk".
"Shoojit actually said this was one of his favorite films of mine," Sinha said in a statement to IANS.
"He loved the narrative so much that he requested me not to reconsider the film," he added.
The film is based on a series of true events and is slated to hit the screens on August 3.
Presented by Kamal Mukut and Soham Rockstar Entertainment, a Benaras Media Works production, the film is produced by Deepak Mukut and Sinha.ALSO READ: Deepika Padukone to Kriti Kharbanda: 5 Starlets who began in South and conquered Bollywood ALSO READ: Dia Mirza's gratitude note for 'Dhak Dhak' co-stars: "Thank you for enriching my life with your generosity"
