The action-packed trailer for the movie shows the protagonist fighting an army of villains on his own (All hail Bollywood!). The movie also stars some of the most renowned actors in the industry which includes Manoj Bajpayee, Randeep Hooda and Prateik Babbar in major roles.

The trailer had a lot of high-octane running and guns blazing around, with Tiger Shroff beating hoards of goons on his own (All hail Bollywood!). The main villain of the movie will be portrayed by none other than Manoj Bajpayee,
who has given us some memorable performances through Gangs OF Wasseypur, Shool, Satya etc.
