New Delhi: After playing rebels in the crime thriller ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’, Manoj Bajpayee and Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be seen as revolutionaries in the upcoming film ‘Chittagong’.

Based on the actual events of 1930 Chittagong Uprising, the film is directed by former NASA scientist Bedabrata Pain.

‘Chittagong’ is based on a little-known incident in the 1930s British India, where a handful of untrained teenage boys and girls, led by a school teacher, gave the British their first military defeat.

Co-produced by Anurag Kashyap and Sunil Bohra, it is releasing Oct 12. It also features Raj Kumar Yadav and Kashyap in prominent roles.
