Hotel Mumbai has been impressing all and sundry with their heart wrenching trailer. As Dev Patel and Anupam Kher get together to imbue a lease of life into the gruesome act of terror on Mumbai, members of the film fraternity are all praises for the film’s trailer. The newest to shower the film with love is the fabulous Ananya Panday. She said, “I watched the trailer of Hotel Mumbai, it gave me goosebumps throughout the runtime, the events of 26/11 were one of the most gruesome chapters in India’s history. The movie is a tribute to all those brave heroes who did their part and helped save as many lives as they could and this movie is an ode to their bravery.”
For most of India, the incident itself was a horrifying event that the country was witness to on November 26, 2008. The film directed by Anthony Maras is a retelling of the fateful night but the film takes in the narrative of the staff present at the Taj Mahal Hotel that was attacked by the gunmen. Chef Hemant Oberoi played by Kher and his team protected the guests at the premises, ensuring that they are safely sneaked out of the hotel when the gunmen were hunting them down. Embodying the spirit of Athithi Devo Bhava, the film reinstates one’s belief in humanity and brotherhood. It celebrates the spirit of the many unsung heroes of 26/11 whose names haven’t got their real due.
As a young, conscientious actress, Ananya Panday came out in huge support of the film and stood by its message.
