The idea, he says, is to send out a strong message to the government and public.
Mumbai's entertainment fraternity joined hands as they came together to mourn the loss of the 23-year-old gangrape victim. From Bollywood bigwigs like Shabana Azmi, Mahesh Bhatt and Genelia D'souza to musical stalwarts like Sonu Nigam, Kailash Kher and Shaan, everyone was present to express solidarity.
"I'm not trying to cash in on the sensitivity of this issue but bring to light a barbaric act that shook our nation. I want to send a strong message through my film that such acts can't be taken lightly and
the perpetrators should be punished severely," Gaddam told IANS.
The film, though not based solely on the Delhi incident in which a 23-year-old was brutally gang-raped and who died, has other commercial elements to make it an interesting watch.
"Even though a small portion of the film will revolve around the incident, it is not entirely about it. We have added all elements to make it a typical commercial entertainer," Gaddam said.
Nisha is produced by J. Dhanraj. Goldee, Sunny and Pranay Kumar have composed music.
The film, currently in post-production phase, stars Kiran Kumar, Ananya, Kalyan and Narsing in lead roles.
