Vivek Agnihotri ropes in Naseeruddin Shah & Mithun Chakraborty

On Lal Bahadur Shastri's death anniversary in January past year, filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri had announced that his next revolved around India's second Prime Minister.

Commenting on the same, director Vivek Agnihotri said, "As a citizen, it is our democratic right to know if our 2nd Prime Minister Shri Lal Bahadur Shastriji died a natural death or as alleged was it an assassination?" Was it heart attack or poison?

Moreover, Vikas has roped in veteran actors Naseeruddin Shah and Mithun Chakraborty for the film.

"A film on the biggest cover-up of a free India required that we work with great actors with credibility". Though nothing much is known about the film, reports claim that it investigates the mysterious death of the leader in 1966 in Uzbekistan after signing the Tashkent declaration with Pakistan.

Talking about the casting of the movie, Vivek adds, "Both Naseer and Mithun are powerhouses and were obvious choices for the film".

The filmmaker further wrote, "Privileged to work with two National Award Winners to tell an untold story of beloved Shashtri ji".

The Tashkent Files is set to be a crowd-sourced gripping thriller.

However, the director is yet to cast the actor who will play the role of Shastri in the film. The film is due to go on floors next week.
