Producer and distributor Viacom18 Motion Pictures has released a teaser of Nandita Das's Saadat Hasan Manto biopic Manto, which will be premiered at the ongoing Cannes Film Festival in the Un Certain Regard section. In the film, Abid Ali Abid is playing lyricist Javed Akhtar while the role of Manto's close friend Ahmed Nadeem Qasmi is being essayed by Chandan Roy Sanyal. Last year, the team of Manto - director Nandita Das and lead actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui - had introduced the film by sharing its first look. The film follows the most tumultuous four years in the life of Manto during the time of Partition of India and Pakistan. His increasing alcoholism leads into downward spiral.

Speaking about the film, Priyanka Chopra said, "At Purple Pebble Pictures, we want to tell good stories, give new talent a chance and provide the audience with an entertaining experience". The film stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Rasika Dugal, Feryna Wazheir, Rajshri Deshpande and Purab Kohli. For youth, it is extremely inspirational to see someone like him. Nawazuddin's portrayal as Manto and Rasika's act as his wife Safia garnered positive reviews at Cannes. "There is no relation of borders between two countries", clarified Nandita. But I think while there have been a lot of rejections, there have also been a lot of things which miraculously worked.

Pliskova put away a simple smash which seemed to land on the line to give her a point to lead 6-5. Pliskova duly lost the game to go 6-5 down, and Sakkari served out to win 7-5 in the third set.

"Given the kind of respect that the Cannes film festival has, it helps create a better buzz for the film overseas and in India too", she adds. "I think it's a film where the audience will be able to take home something and everyone will relate with his personality". "He used to tell me that he would not be able to do another film simultaneously because he had immersed himself so deep into the character of Manto", shared Nandita. He also explained how he could relate to the character and siad, " I am hopeful people will relate to him, especially those who believe in speaking truth, no matter how hard it maybe". "We are not offending anybody", she said.
