Heartless, which features Shekhar's son Adhyayan Suman as the protagonist, deals with a frightening medical phenomenon called anesthesia awareness. When asked to shed some light on the movie and the phenomenon around which the film revolves, he stated, "It's a hardcore romantic thriller with a medical background so. My film's plot revolves around a phenomenon called anesthesia awareness and not many people are aware of it."
"It's a very interesting but frightening phenomenon and one out of a 1000 or may be 10,000 patients experience it. When they are anaesthetized, because of the anesthesia effect they become unconscious from the outside, but remain conscious from within, which means you start hearing sounds in the operation theater and start experiencing the pain. You shout for help, but no one can hear you. A lot of people I have spoken with have admitted to the fact that at one time or the other, they have experienced it, and they only realized it was anesthesia awareness when I told them about it," he further added.
The movie will also star Shekhar, Om Puri, Deepti Naval and Madan Jain in pivotal roles and it will also mark the debut of Ariana Ayam. Hearless is all set to illumine the big screens on February 7, 2014.
