Ketan Mehta's film is about a labourer in a Bihar village, who carved a road through a hill using nothing more than a hammer, to offer the villagers better access.

With the passion for acting and belief in his skills, Nawazuddin Siddiqui's journey in the Hindi film industry is a success story in itself and he just hopes his thought on cinema "never gets corrupt". For about 19 years, Nawazuddin has been working relentlessly, doing exceptional work, be it as a junior artiste or a leading man in Bollywood today. With films like Patang: The Kite, Miss Lovely, Haraamkhor and The Lunchbox among others - that travelled to various international film festivals - he has won the hearts of audiences across the globe.
