MANTO the most awaited film stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Rasika Duggal and Divya Dutta in pivotal roles.

As the makers presented MANTO at the 71st Cannes Film Festival, they also revealed the first teaser of the film online late Saturday.

The trailer is gripping and takes us to the post-Independence era when the country grappled with poverty and corruption. With his body language, attitude and the tone of his voice, Nawazuddin is a rebel writer who never shies away from speaking the truth be it to his family or the larger society. We also see glimpses of the court case against Manto that was filed for his short story, Thanda Ghosht.

The cast of MANTO unveiled the teaser at the Cannes; Nawaz along with Divya Dutta was there at Cannes.

Images are all over social media.

Sharing the teaser, Nawazuddin shared,“First day in #FestivalDeCannes with the much awaited #MantoTeaser #CannesWithManto.”

When the teaser is so gripping we are anxiously waiting for the trailer!
