Producer and director of India’s first Uncut film Hemant Nilim Das’ today approached the Mumbai police with a written complaint against the threatening calls his associate producer and himself have been receiving for the last two weeks allegedly from North Eastern militants. The militants today threatened to kill producer Hemant Nilim Das and associate producer Franklyn R if the film Underground was released in June. "We spent 4 hours running from one police station to the other. We first went to the Dahisar police station and were diverted to the Andheri East police station. They then asked us to go to the MHB Police station.

Earlier too Hemant Nilim Das was threatened by an alleged militant organization from the North-Eastern sector. The call was received by Associate Producer R Franklyn  who said that a caller claiming allegiance to the USLF or United September Liberation Front threatened Hemant Nilim Das  with dire consequences to his family and himself if his film portrayed the ‘organizations working for the liberation of the North Eastern people in poor light’.

The film Underground which features Rekha Rana and two other well-known actors, with a special appearance by DJ Jenny D in a promotional video for the film, was recently completed after being shot in a bunker on the Indo-Chinese border. It is produced and directed by Hemant Nilim Das. The film is likely to be released in end-June this year, say sources. Dj Jenny D will record a special promotional  song for the film.

The story of the film revolves around the murder of an activist who was killed by alleged terrorists in the North-Eastern belt of India. The three protagonists in the film are captured by terrorists and imprisoned in an underground bunker.

This is not the first time that Hemant Nilim Das has received threats about his film. About a month ago, similar threats were made by another north-eastern outfit demanding that he scrap the project.

Underground stars Nihar Thakkar in the role of a son of Pakistani diplomat while Awadesh Mishra, a national award-winning actor plays the role of a NGO activist who was kidnapped by a terrorist organization way back in 1997 from a north-eastern river island.
