Arjun Rampal and Konkona Sensharma to star in Aparna Sen’s The Rapist
The social drama will go on floors in March
Arjun Rampal and Konkona Sensharma will star in Aparna Sen’s The Rapist. The socially-relevant film marks Aparna Sen’s third directorial outing in Hindi. She had previously made Saari Raat (2015) and Sonata (2017) in Hindi.
“The Rapist is a hard-hitting drama that examines how much of society is responsible for producing rapists,” says a source close to the development. “It's about the victim's trauma, the circumstances, and how a woman deals with it. The pre-production has already started and the film will get off the ground officially in March.”
The film will be produced under the banner of Banijay Asia.
Arjun and Konkona had last worked together in Vinod Mitra’s anthology film Meridian Lines (2013). Arjun was recently seen in Nail Polish (on ZEE5). His upcoming releases are Dhaakad and Penthouse.
