The film stars top-notch actors like, Naseeruddin Shah, Paresh Rawal, Tisca Chopra, Sanjay Suri besides others. “The film is an ensemble of five stories. It deals with emotions, relationships, reaction and helplessness in such times,” says an excited Nandita Das. One look at the promo and you know that it is a hard-hitting film. “It deals with a delicate situation. It is not a comedy film but once you see the film, it is bound to touch your hearts,” adds Nandita. On speaking to Sanjay about Firaaq he says, “Firaaq means separation, some have a long separation and some have a short one but they share the same agony. I play a Muslim man who does not wear his name on his face. It’s about my wife and me and how we deal with the complex emotions at such times.”
The film is in conversational language, some English, Hindi, and Urdu. “Nandita has been a fantabulous director. Inspite of being her first directorial film she never once showed it. The film is about how violence affects people’s lives. Beyond this you will have to see the film,” concludes Tisca Chopra.
