With a Swiss brand facing flak in India over the quality of its popular snack Maggi noodles, actor Emraan Hashmi says it is the right time to release his film "Tigers", which is an expose on the malpractices of an international food corporation.
The movie, directed by Oscar-winning Bosnian director Danis Tanovic of "No Man's Land" fame, is about a salesman who secures his dream job with a multi-national corporation marketing infant formula milk, the artificial substitute for breast milk, only to go against the big guys when he learns about the damage the product is doing to babies.
Emraan hopes the producers of "Tigers", which was screened in the Contemporary World Cinema section at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, resolve their issues and release the film as soon as possible.
"It is the appropriate time. It should release right now.
It is hanging with the producers. It has got a great response from festivals. There are some issues with the producers that has been going on for a while. I hope they get sense into their heads and release the film as soon as possible," Emraan told PTI.
"Tigers" also stars Geetanjali Thapa, Danny Huston, Khalid Abdalla and Adil Hussain.
