Nikhil Advani, Director, D-Day commented, “The idea of capturing India’s most wanted man in his own playing ground is a question every Indian has asked at least once in their life. D-Day is our attempt at bringing this very idea alive on screen. From the plot to the performances, every aspect of this movie is real, gritty and hard hitting, but more importantly, it’s honest. The set action pieces in the film and the riveting musical score by Shankar Ehsaan Loy add several layers to the extraordinary, sweeping and rugged landscape that the film endeavors to capture. D-Day is by far the most difficult film I’ve made.”
