Amid lockdown due to COVID-19, his film has been delayed indefinitely. Led by Pankaj Tripathi, the actor-filmmaker said that there is only little work left on post-production. It was supposed to release on May 15 but now he will wait and come up with a plan on how to release it.
Meanwhile, the film is the story of Lal Bihari, a farmer from Amilo, Azamgarh whose uncle bribed an official to declare him dead so he could usurp his ancestral property. For 19 years, Lal Bihari tried everything possible to prove that he was alive and finally, the court ruled in his favour. Later, Lal Bihari prefixed his name with ‘Mritak’ (deceased) as a reminder of his struggle to exist and founded the Uttar Pradesh Association of Dead People to highlight cases like his.
