Shot in the mining town of Dalli Rajhara on the outskirts of Maoist’s controlled forests, the movie is set to present an eye-opener to the viewers. To conserve the rawness of the film, tribals from the jungle settlements were auditioned and finalized by the casting director in a month’s span.
Newton‘s director, Amit V Masurkar (of Sulemani Keeda fame) says, “This film is very close to my heart. We had an exciting and demanding shoot in the middle of Chhattisgarh jungles, and the result is this unique story which we are proud to share.”
