As defined by Oxford Dictionaries the world Islamophobia means ‘dislike of or prejudice against Islam or Muslims, especially as a political force.’ The effect of this word is, however, devastating. Not only India, the entire world is plagued by this term which first emerged in the 20th Century. With the rising dread of terrorist activities across the globe, the aspect of Islamophobia is on the rise too. Sadly, there are very few who actually takes a stand to talk about its implications. However, the recently released trailer of the upcoming movie Mulk, focuses on this issue.

This Hindi drama is directed by Anubhav Sinha and scheduled to release on August 3. It features veteran actor Rishi Kapoor as the protagonist. Also, we will again witness the strong and powerful acting of Taapsee Pannu. Other than that, the movie also features Prateik Babbar, Rajat Kapoor, and Ashutosh Rana.

 

 

The trailer is about 3 minutes long but will keep you spellbound right from the first second. As depicted, it tells the story of a Muslim family trying to regain their honor after one member turns out to be a terrorist. It also focuses how they are being the victims of Islamophobia and hatred. The trailer gave the indication that the movie will show the plight of family of terrorists in an in-depth manner.

 

 

This is a sensitive issue that never fails to attract controversy. Sadly, there are many Indians too who fall prey to this trap of Islamophobia and the same is beautifully depicted in the Mulk trailer. We are glad that this upcoming film is showing the courage to address the elephant in the room. Before revealing how the netizens reacted, here’s the trailer:

 

 

If you are thinking that the trailer attracted loads of negative comments, then you are wrong. Indians, irrespective of their religion, came forward to show their support.
