Faraaz trailer out: Hansal Mehta, who is known for making intense thriller is back with another thrilling hostage drama titled Faraaz. The trailer of Faraaz which is based on a real-life terrorist attack in Dhaka in 2016 shows how one young boy showed a courage to stand against the bloodthirsty terrorists in the darkest time.
