The teaser for the movie Mulk has been dropped on Friday. A social thriller, based on real-life incidents, Mulk boasts of stellar star cast including Rishi Kapoor, Taapsee Pannu, Rajat Kapoor, Prachi Shah and Ashutosh Rana in pivotal roles.

Rishi Kapoor will be essaying the role of Murad Ali Mohammed, for whom Taapsee Pannu will be fighting at the court as his lawyer. The lead actor Rishi Kapoor as Mohammed is seen facing atrocities in the hands of his own people while his family members try to defend him.

It is interesting to see Taapsee play a defence lawyer herself after Pink, in which she played the victim. In Pink, Amitabh Bachchan had played the role of Taapsee’s lawyer.
