Rajkumar Rao shared the poster of the film on his twitter handle. He wrote along the picture, “Here’s the official poster of #Omerta. Film releasing on 20th April. Trailer out in two days.” Rajkumar Rao termed this character as the ‘toughest’ one he has played till date.

Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap also shared the poster and praised the actor-director “courageous duo” of Rajkumar Rao and Hansal Mehta.
“Omertà is not an easy film to pitch, to sell about the most unsympathetic man a very hard character to play on screen and a harder film to make put together by the most courageous duo of @mehtahansal and @RajkummarRao . Looking forward to see it on screen,” wrote Kashyap on Twitter.
Rajkumar Rao and Hansal Mehta have previously worked together in ‘Shahid’ and ‘Citylights’.
