'The Attacks of 26/11' profits will be donated to victims: Producer
IANS [ Mon, Nov 26, 2012 ]
- Mumbai, Nov 26 (IANS) The profits earned from Ram Gopal Varma-directed "The Attacks of 26/11", about the 2008 terror attacks in the city, will be donated to victims and heroes, says the film's producer Parag Sanghvi.
As many as 10 Pakistani terrorists attacked Taj Mahal Hotel, Oberoi Trident Hotel, Nariman House and CST railway station here on Nov 26, 2008 and killed 166 people.
Sanghvi told IANS: "I don't look at this film as a commercial venture. The profit that will be earned from the film will be given to the victims and heroes of the Mumbai attacks."
"It is a huge film for me. It's a very expensive film. We didn't get to shoot the film in the original locations, so we had to create the entire set. We had to create the CST Station, so it wasn't easy at all," he added.
Sanghvi wants the world to see what exactly happened that day.
"The idea to make the film is that we want the world to see what happened that day. It's been a very emotional journey. We are planning to release the film early next year. I want to take this film across the world," he said.
"The Attacks of 26/11" features Nana Patekar and Sanjeev Jaiswal, among others.
