31st October showcases a family’s courage and survival that was caught in their worst nightmare with death and torture staring them in the face. It’s based on the true life story of a family and is close depiction of one of the darkest days in the Indian history.

After facing a lot of controversy because of its sensitive subject, ’31st October’ is finally set to hit the screens this week. Makers say that the film, based on the anti-Sikh riots that followed Indira Gandhi’s assassination in 1984, promotes unity.

The movie, Starring Vir Das and Soha Ali Khan is scheduled to be released on October 21. This film written and produced by Harry Sachdeva and directed by Shivaji Lotan Patil.

Soha Ali Khan says her mother and veteran actress Sharmila Tagore loved her de-glam look in 31st October.

“My mother came to know about this film through a friend. She watched the trailer and loved my non-glamourous look in the film. She appreciated my appearance as a Sardarni and in the second half she said I am looking like a Bengali while disguising as a Hindu during the escape,” Soha said at a film’s press conference here.
