India's Most Wanted, the Arjun Kapoor starrer that is set to hit theatres this Friday, was screened to a special audience over the weekend. Among the celebrities who watched the movie, Abhishek Bachchan, director Sujoy Ghosh and producer Bunty Walia took to Twitter to shower words of praise on the film.
The film, directed by Raj Kumar Gupta, is about an undercover operation to capture a deadly terrorist without the use of any weapons. Though the makers have kept the name of the terrorist under wraps, it is believed to be Yasin Bhatkal, who allegedly co-founded the terror outfit Indian Mujahideen.
Calling the film "taut, edge-of-your-seat and very engaging," Abhishek said that it was nice to see that films are being made on our unsung heroes.
Really enjoyed watching #IndiasMostWanted. Taut, edge-of-your-seat and very engaging. Just as a thriller should be. @arjunk26 you were simmering. So nice to see films being made on our unsung heroes too. Well done Rajkumar and the entire cast and crew. Good luck at the movies.— Abhishek Bachchan (@juniorbachchan) May 20, 2019

Actress Taapsee Pannu put up a tweet wishing the film's team all the best.
