Set in 1960 in Bihar and based on a true story, the film is about a man who carved a path through a mountain in memory of his wife.

"It is the toughest and passionate love story. It was toughest characters of my life - both physically and mentally," said the actor here in an interview Wednesday.

"And to take one's mind to that thought was very tough," added the actor.

Nawaz will also be seen in "The Lunchbox" releasing Sep 20.
