As a slew of films have opted to release on Netflix, joining them is ‘Raat Akeli Hai’. The film stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte in the lead. It will be the debut film for casting director Honey Trehan.
The film is about a high profile murder in a small town. A cop, who is assigned to investigate the case, discovers toxic patriarchy’s prevalence in the victim’s family. What follows, forms the crux of the story.
Both the leading actors, Nawazuddin and Radhika revealed the film’s Netflix release via Twitter. Radhika tweeted :
Raat baaki, baat baaki, hona hai jo, ho jaane do? Will Jatil Yadav find out what happened that night? @Nawazuddin_S @battatawada #ShivaniRaghuvanshi @RonnieScrewvala @HoneyTrehan @RSVPMovies @MacguffinP @dirtigmanshu

While, Nawazuddin also made a post, showing his character in the film. Apart from them, the film also stars actors such as Aditya Srivastava, Ila Arun, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Shweta Tripathi, Nishant Dahiya, Khalid Tyabji and Shivani Raghuvanshi.
Earlier, Nawaz has shared screen space with both Radhika and Shweta. With Radhika he shared the space in Manjhi : The Mountain Man, while with Shweta in Haraamkhor.
Talking about their upcoming film, Shweta had earlier said :
“I take it as an honour and opportunity to be working with Nawaz bhai again in Raat Akeli Hai. Incidentally, Haraamkhor was my debut film as it had been shot before Masaan. However, it released later. I feel fortunate to have made my debut alongside Nawaz bhai.”
Nawazuddin was last seen in Ghoomketu which released on Zee5 few months back. While Radhika appeared last year in, Bombiriya.
