Those who have seen the rushes say The Rapist is Aparna’s finest work in many years with the three actors giving their careers’ best performances.
A source close to the project says, “The Rapist is Aparna Sen’s most hard-hitting film to date. It looks at the heinous crime from angles that we’ve never explored before, at least not in Indian cinema. The film will shake up a lot of inertia and status quo in the country regarding sexual violence.”
Apparently, Arjun Rampal became so involved with the characters and the plot that he couldn’t sleep for days.
