THE RELUCTANT FUNDAMENTALIST is a touching and engaging story of a young man chasing corporate success on Wall Street.

We are very excited about the films prospects in India and are keenly looking forward to its theatrical release. ''

On this occasion, Mira said, ''I have made all kinds of films with the subcontinent in my heart, but TRF is my first human thriller, a coming of age story that bridges our world with America. It is a film like no other - an Indian director making a Pakistani film across several continents, uniting a-list Hollywood talent with legends from the Hindi film industry, creating a modern sound that crosses borders with its Sufi qawaallis, Rap music, Faiz poems, and techno groove. I am thrilled that PVR, India's leading distributor for international films, is passionate about my work and committed to bring THE RELUCTANT FUNDAMENTALIST across the subcontinent.'
