Sometime last week, a special screening of UTV Motion Pictures' A Wednesday was held in Gujarat for CM Narendra Modi. Close on the heels of that screening, the makers have decided to hold yet another screening of the same film, this time for the Mumbai Police.
Rakesh Maria, Javed Ahmed, A.N.Roy, and around 65 Senior police officers, who deal with terrorists and are part of the Anti Terrorist Squad are going to watch the film today, ie, 1st of September.
Rakesh Maria and Javed Ahmed were part of the investigation team of 1993 Mumbai blasts. A Wednesday is a fast-paced thriller based on the aftermath of bomb blasts. Anupam Kher plays a police commissioner who gets a threat call and is on a mission to stop the terrorist. Aamir Bashir and Jimmy Shergill are part of Anti Terrorist Squad in the film while Naseeruddin Shah plays the antagonist.
Speaking about the special screening director Neeraj Pandey said, "This is our way of saying thanks to the police force. The story of the film is greatly inspired by the way our police force tackle the situations. Through the film, we would like to salute all of them."
"A Wednesday deals with urban terrorism and how the police force has to handle it uniquely. We are very happy to realize that veterans of our police force want to see this film. A film like this is very relevant in today's time. We are gladly arranging a screening where heroes of our police force like A.N.Roy, Rakesh Maria and Ahmed Javed would be seeing the film" said Siddharth Roy Kapur, CEO-UTV Motion Pictures.
Director Neeraj Pandey along with actors Anupam Kher and Naseeruddin Shah are going to be present for the screening.
