Mumbai:After a special screening of Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Shweta Tripathi starrer "Haraamkhor" here, celebrities like Kalki Koechlin and Vicky Kaushal were appreciative of how the "powerful story" has been told.

The Jio MAMI Film Club with Star premiered the movie here on Tuesday night.

Kalki said: "I've seen an early cut of the film two, three years ago. I loved the film. I am excited to see the final product. I am very proud of (director) Shlok Sharma that, finally, he got the film out. He is a good friend of many years, so I am very happy for him.

"It is a very powerful story and both Shweta and Nawazuddin have done an outstanding job."

Vicky, who featured with Shweta in "Masaan", said: "To some extent, I am also part of the journey of this film. Shlok (Sharma), Nawaz bhai, Shweta are all my close friends. I am aware of all the hardships the film had to face. Ultimately, the film is going to release. I feel very happy for the entire team."

The crowd-funded film about a student-teacher romance faced hurdles with the censor board. It is releasing on Friday after getting a green signal from the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal.

The movie had won the Silver Gateway of India trophy at the 17th Edition of the MAMI film festival.
