Mulk is an upcoming Bollywood flick based on a true story of a Muslim family in India that tries to reclaim its reputation after everything falls apart. It stars Rishi Kapoor and Taapsee Pannu in the lead roles and holds a very controversial yet powerful message!
Since the release of its trailer, Mulk has received a mixed response from the audience. The latest teaser of Mulk starring Taapsee Pannu has further ignited fury among many Indians, in which she highlights the issues Aarti Malhotra faces after becoming Aarti Mohammad!
Watch the teaser below!
This short clip has created a debate among the Indians who think that this movie explains only one side of the story and is funded by political parties and terrorist groups that want to portray the negative image of India!
The trailer of Mulk was released earlier this month, revealing that Rishi Kapoor’s son played by Prateik Babbar gets the blame for a terrorist attack and the whole family suffers the wrath of the society. This Muslim family gets called by names and is asked to leave India and relocate to Pakistan!
Watch the full trailer below!
The story seems thought-provoking with some outstanding acting from Rishi Kapoor and Taapsee Pannu, a lawyer and also Rishi Kapoor’s daughter-in-law, who will try to redeem her family’s reputation after the whole world turns against them!
Many are trolling Rishi Kapoor for playing the role of a Muslim and one of the things that Indians and Pakistanis have in common is the fact we don’t hesitate to hate on our own stars!

Even Anubhav Sinha, the director of Mulk, had to write a long message to all the trolls who are accusing him of being biased to only one community, the Muslims.
He took to his twitter account and explained,
An open letter to all the trolls. Bring it on!!! pic.twitter.com/QSLMOBLmnz

Other than Rishi Kapoor and Taapsee Pannu, Mulk stars Neena Gupta, Ashutosh Rana, and Prateik Babbar, and is all set to release on 3rd August. Let’s hope it does not create any more controversy considering the importance of this month in both the countries!
