Rajkummar Rao’s next is titled Newton and the poster of the film was out on Tuesday. Earlier, the makers revealed a poster with just the EVM machine. But on the new poster, Rajkummar can also be seen. Directed by Amit V Masurkar and produced by Manish Mundra, the film is said to be a black comedy.
Newton’s poster features Rajkummar Rao on the run with the EVM (Electronic Voting Machine) and has the caption “Seedha Aadmi Ulti Duniya!” The film is about Newton Kumar, who is a rookie government clerk. He is being sent on election duty in a Naxal-affected town inside the forests of Chhattisgarh.

While on one hand Newton faces the apathy of security forces, there always remains the looming fear of guerrilla attacks by the Naxalites on the other. He tries his best to conduct free and fair voting regardless of the odds loaded against him.
Newton also features Pankaj Tripathi, Anjali Patil, Raghuvir Yadav and Sanjay Mishra. The film will be releasing on August 18.
