Stuck with Censor Board for 6 months, it took just 16 days for Haraamkhor to be shot

The trailer of Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer Haraamkhor has left cinephiles high on anxiety. Apart from garnering praises for its content, it has also made us wonder about CBFC’s decision of not giving it a clearance for so long.

Directed by Shlok Sharma, the movie is set in rural Gujarat and chronicles an unusual love story between a married professor (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) and his student (Shweta Tripathi). The interesting addition to the story is the little kid, Shweta’s fellow classmate, who develops feelings for her and tries very hard to impress her.

With the trailer hinting towards an out-of-the-way start to the Bollywood calendar of 2017, here is a little trivia about the movie you might not be knowing about. Haraamkhor, that was stuck with the censor board for around six months was shot in 16 days. Revealing the same in the media of late, director Shlok said that this painstaking task of shooting a feature film in such a less time could be possible because of the crew. He mentioned:

It was indeed very challenging to finish an entire feature film’s shoot in 16 days. That’s why the team’s role was the most crucial. My lead actors Nawaz Bhai and Shweta were spot on. So was the crew
