The film is gritty realistic story about the social underclass; illegal immigrants working in a restaurant in Los Angeles, USA. Suraj Sharma plays the illegal immigrant in the film whereas Shweta Tripathi plays Mahi, Suraj’s sister who had always encouraged him to trust himself, follow his heart and dreams. A very self assured girl who during testing times, becomes the back bone of the family. Shweta has impressed us all with her debut film Masaan followed by Haramkhor. Shweta from the start of her career has been associated with great films with incredible stories. Even Zoo falls under the same category and now comes The Illegal.
