After the global success of Anurag Kashyap’s film Kennedy, lead actor Rahul Bhat is set to collaborate with director Vikramaditya Motwane for his upcoming film.
THE PROJECT: This time, their focus is on bringing the 2019 book “Black Warrant: Confessions of a Tihar Jailer” by journalist Sunetra Choudhury and former Tihar Jail superintendent Sunil Gupta to the cinematic realm. Fresh from the success of Kennedy, Rahul Bhat is set to dive into this enthralling crime thriller under the direction of Vikramaditya Motwane. According to sources in Bollywood Hungama, Rahul has started shooting for the project in Mumbai.
THE STORY: In an interview with Indianexpress.com, Motwane expressed his excitement about delving into the intricacies of the prison world with this new series. The book is a collection of accounts detailing the experiences of notorious criminals who served their sentences in the jail. “The book covers 35 years of Sunil Gupta’s life in Tihar. It is a 200-page book, so we of course had to slow it down. We are breaking it into a five-year period. It is a very exciting project. It is a new world for me– jail, the 80s, Ranga-Billa case among other things. It is also an opportunity to create this prison drama, to show what all goes behind the scenes,” Motwane said.
VIKRAMADITYA’S NEXT FEATURES ANANYA PANDAY: Before working on the adaptation of Black Warrant, the filmmaker will release another film titled Control, featuring Ananya Panday. The film is set to be a “screen life thriller” and unfolds entirely on a computer screen. “This is the first time I am saying it publicly, but she has done a fabulous job in the film. She is perfectly cast in it. The film is about an influencer and her boyfriend and what actually happens. It has got AI, it’s futuristic, it is very cool, it’s a great script. It is in the screen life format, of how Searching and Missing films were. So within that format, we have had our own little fun,” the filmmaker added.
