The film was based on a story revolving around women of middle age.
Talking about the film ‘The Rapist’, Aparna Sen told the media, ‘Women never come forward to condemn rapists, because they know that nothing is going to happen. The society will hold them responsible. Apart from this, the victim does not come forward due to social dignity and fear of breaking the family, although now things are changing. Stringent rules have started to be feared by the law. Sexual abuse is being taken very seriously at the workplace. Now women are getting dared to talk about rapists. Now she is raising her voice. Actress, director and activist Aparna Sen has always been vocal about violence, rape through her films. Arjun Rampal is currently busy in four big projects these days. These days Kangana is shooting for the film ‘Dhakad’ with Ranaut.
