Justice delayed is justice denied: Anupam Kher at One Day trailer launch
The veteran actor plays a retired judge-turned-vigilante in his new film
Earlier today, veteran actor Anupam Kher launched the trailer of his upcoming film, One Day. Directed by Ashok Nanda, the Mumbai-set thriller follows the story of a retired judge-turned-vigilante (Anupam Kher) trying to correct his past mistakes. Esha Gupta plays a Haryanvi Special Branch officer, while Kumud Mishra and Anant Mahadevan appear in supporting roles.
“The film is about a judge who, on the day of his retirement, realises there were four cases in his career that were wrongly ruled by him. He then heads out to deliver justice. It's a beautifully told cat-and-mouse story,” said Anupam.
The 64-year-old actor also commented on the state of the Indian judicial system. “Justice delayed is justice denied, according to me. There are many cases pending in our country. Some of them don't even reach the court because people cannot afford lawyers. I think we are still following the British judicial system. We need to change that and appoint many more judges.”
One Day is produced by Ketan Patel and Swati Singh. The film is scheduled for release on June 14. Anupam Kher recently wrapped shooting for New Amsterdam and will be focusing on Bollywood films in the coming weeks.
