Upcoming movie 'Newton' starring Rajkummar Rao and Anjali Patil has been shortlisted for the renowned Berlin Film Festival or Berlinale as it is popularly known.

The film is directed by Amit V Masurkar and is produced by Manish Mundra. The plot in the film portrays the life of a clerk who is placed on election duty in a conflict-ridden area of Chhattisgarh. He tries his best to conduct free and fair voting despite the apathy of security forces and the looming fear of an attack by Maoist rebels.

Rajkummar, who is an intense actor known for his versatile portrayals, said, “Yes, it’s the journey of a common man who aspires to be someone in life and heads to a jungle infested with Naxals. It’s a really funny story. I’ve been reading a lot of scripts but at the same time am being careful and choosy. Manish Mundra, who’s made Ankhon Dekhi and Masaan, got in touch and as soon as I read it, I knew this was it.”

The Berlin film fest will run from February 9 to February 19.
