Maverick Film maker Ram Gopal Varma has announced long back that he is planning to make a film on the 26/11 attacks on Mumbai but until yesterday, there were no updates on the progress of the film. But soon after, Ajmal Kasab, the lone caught-alive culprit of the disastrous event was hanged, RGV has released the trailer of the film and that too in typical RGV style.
He has released the first 8 minutes footage of the film in which Nana Patekar, who is portraying the role of the investigating officer, explains to the committee regarding how these attacks took place. With a fade out and fade in, the scene opens on a cloudy day in the middle of the Arabian sea where Kasab and party hijack the boat of Indian fishermen.
No one in the past have released such long footage from their film and this teaser of the film has created much curiosity in the audience. Unlike most of the RGV films where likes and dislikes will be in equal number, everyone on the social network platforms are saying that ‘RGV is back’. “I will show the world how the Mumbai attacks took place and how Kasab was hanged”, exclaimed RGV in the press meet of his film titled ‘The Attacks Of 26/11′.
Well one doesn’t understand when the shooting took place but RGV has said that he made the entire film and was stuck with how to resolve the climax. Thanks to the government, now there is no need of any brainstorming for the climax. Union Home minister Sushil Kumar Shinde along with the President Pranab Mukherjee and Mumbai Police have provided a perfect script for the conflict resolution part of the film by taking a decision to hang Kasab.
Meanwhile the producers announced that if at all the film turns out to be a profitable venture, all the profits would be donated to the victims of the 26/11 attacks. The role of Ajmal Kasab is being portrayed by Sanjeev Jaiswal. Amar Mohile is providing the background score and cinematography is being handled by Harshraj Shroff and M Ravichandran Thevar. Parag Sanghvi, under the banner of Alumbra Productions is producing this venture and is being distributed by Eros International. The replica of Taj hotel was set up under the art direction of Uday Singh.
