Actor Darshan Kumar, who plays a lawyer in the upcoming biopic of Indian convict Sarabjit Singh, says he is certain the movie will get a release in Pakistan, despite its sensitive subject.
Directed by Omung Kumar, the movie is based on Sarabjit, who died following an assault by fellow prisoners at a Pakistani jail. It stars Randeep Hooda in the titular role and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as Sarabjit's sister Dalbir Kaur.
"I don't think ''Sarbjit'' will be banned in Pakistan because it gives a good message. We are not trying to say who's right or who's wrong, but trying to show the reality that Sarabjit was misunderstood, the way he was treated that we have showed in the film," Darshan said. About his role, he said playing a Pakistani lawyer fighting for Sarbjit, meant a lot to him as an actor. "My character, Awaiz Sheikh, is a fighter. He is staying in Pakistan and fighting for Sarabjit. It is a big thing, like a common man fighting the world. It is an amazing role and I had a lot of fun doing it."
