Since 31st October is a poignant thriller, that aims to depict one of those days that changed the course of Indian history and affected millions of people in the country, the makers took the opportunity to draw focus on the injustice that the victims and their families continue to face to this day.

The film recently faced a fresh PIL and a video of the film was also leaked in attempt to prove that the film is targeting a political party and hence should not be released.

Says producer Harry Sachdeva, ” We have chosen to use cinema as a catalyst to bring about a social change . I am happy to be part of this movement and would like to thank everyone who has supported us through this journey. 31st October is a human interest story and the message of the film is very clear that such genocides are no good to any individual, country or community”.

Says Soha Ali Khan, “The film is based on a true story of a sikh family and their journey against all odds for survival and having lived their life albeit on screen , it personally moves and saddens me to see the atrocities they have gone through”.
