“Brilliant,” said BJP leader L.K. Advani after watching a special screening of Ram Gopal Varma’s film The Attacks of 26/11 at the Films Division Auditorium in New Delhi. Advani was present there along with various other leaders who cut across party lines to view the film.
From Shah Nawaz Hussain to Sanjay Nirupam, from Naveen Jindal to Balbir Punj, from Raj Babbar to Ram Vilas Paswan, they were all there to watch RGV’s latest film. The hordes of politicians were stunned by the imagery of the film as they watched the unfolding of the most audacious attack on Indian soil post independence. Ram Gopal Varma humbly stood and heard reactions and praises for his work as sources inform that member of parliament Rajeev Pratap Rudy insisted in front of LK Advani for a “special screening” to be done of the film in Parliament for all the Indian MPs to view.
Late last night, RGV tweeted, “Just finished a screening of 26/11 with some top notch politicians in Delhi including L K Advaniji and I am overwhelmed with the response. Advaniji had tears in his eyes by the end of the film and his daughter Pratibhaji was visibly affected.”
The Attacks of 26/11 is produced by Eros International and Alumbra Entertainment and releases tomorrow (March 1).
