Ashish R. Mohan's next on life of a gangster
After Dibakar Banerjee's Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! that was based on Bunty Chor, director Ashish R Mohan of Khiladi 786 fame is now going to make a film based on gangster Babloo Srivastav's life. The script has been written by Zilla Ghaziabad writer Vinay Sharma who has been working on the script for some time now and approached Ashish R. Mohan who agreed to helm the project.
Says a source, "Vinay Sharma and director, Ashish R. Mohan managed to get a special permission to meet Babloo Srivastav in Delhi Patiala Court two days back and the film is on card.
Earlier Babloo Srivastav had shown keenness in a biopic on his life. "I had approached Ashish from a long time and finally after release of Khiladi 786, he heard the script and gave his nod. Babloo was quite upbeat to see a young and hit director to have agreed to do the film and has promised to give us all the insight in his life and help in every possible way to make the film as authentic as possible", said writer Vinay Sharma.
When contacted Ashish R Mohan, he agreed that he is making the film but didn't reveal anything beyond that saying, "Yes, I would be making the film based on his life. I think his life makes for a fascinating subject of a film".
The cast for the film is not yet finalized but it will be interesting to see who will play the character of Babloo Srivastav on screen.
