After the critical and commercial success of his last film Gangaajal, filmmaker Prakash Jha comes up with another hard-hitting film on a socially relevant issue. Apaharan once again brings together the combination of Ajay Devgan and Nana Patekar after Bhoot while the supporting cast primarily comprises of the Gangaajal team.

Character Sketch

Ajay Devgan as Ajay Shastri
A man burdened by the expectations of his deeply principled and self-righteous social activist father. He is compelled to travel a path that is completely divergent from that of his father.

Mohan Agashe as Professor Raghuvansh Shastri
Ajay's Shastri father. A courageous man ruled by conscience and principles. A great man but perhaps a failed father.

Nana Patekar as Tabrez
A minority political leader, runs an empire, a parallel government that encompasses the political, the criminal, the bureaucratic, the mercenary, the philanthropic…

Bipasha Basu as Megha
She loves Ajay and thinks she understands him. But their worlds are perhaps too far apart.

Cleo Issacs as Sonia
Nightclub dancer and Ajay's distraction. She is in love with Ajay. But Ajay, detached and cold, is perhaps no longer capable of love.

Yashpal Sharma as Gaya Singh
Tabrez's key crony who executes kidnappings, and plans murder, safe and protected within the bars of a regular jail.


Apaharan, is the story of a tumultuous and complex relationship between a father (Mohan Agashe) and son (Ajay Devgan) set against the backdrop of a thriving kidnapping industry in the Hindi heartland of Bihar, North India.

Apaharan is not merely the story of the kidnapping of human beings for mercenary purpose. It is the story of the kidnapping of society itself. The kidnapping of the moral fiber that sustains a civilistion.

A story that explores how values and morality are held to ransom in a world fast losing its conscience. Apharan resonates with the cry of spineless and helpless society whose very soul has been abducted.

The proliferation of crime, the precarious political balance of coalition politics, the so-called interests of minorities, fractured and purchased vote banks, a submissive and complaint bureaucracy, a corrupt police force…The blurring boundaries between politics and crime…

The time of nexus is long gone. Now criminals are politicians and politicians are criminals… Politicians who operate from jails and criminals who operate from ministerial offices… As scared and fearful business communities, and the common taxpayer are extorted to finance this world, there is no right and no wrong. No fear of god, no morality and no principles…Everything can be is acceptable because the conscience of society has been kidnapped. And people of courage and conscience are a rarity, a disappearing anachronism…

Deep in the Hindi heartland of India the story of Apaharan unfolds…

Supporting cast

The supporting cast of Apaharan comprises of Ayub Khan, Chetan Pandit, Anoop Soni, Mukesh Tiwari, Daya Shankar Pandey, Mukul Nag, Ehsaan Khan, Murli Sharma, Radhakrishna Dutta, Brij Gopal and Akhilendra Mishra.
