Every one is cashing in on Osama Bin Laden’s killing — from merchandise, spam videos to video games — and now films.

After Hollywood filmmaker Kathryn Bigelow announced plans to chnage the script that she had written for a movie on Bin Laden, Bollywood filmmakers are also following suit.

Filmmaker Anil Goyal has decided to change the climax of his 3-D animation film Crackers to introduce a character inspired by Osama.

The movie is about four characters who are present during the terror attacks and resuce people. Director Anil Goyal says, “We have changed the climax of our film after Bin Laden’s death. Our film is based on 26/11. In the previoulsy shot climax, all the terrorists die in Mumbai, but now that it has been revealed that Bin Laden was hiding in Pakistan, so we are showing that the rescuers use the terrorists to get to Paksitan and capture their leader, who we have based on Bin Laden. This is much like what has hapenned in reality. It will add to the audience interest in the movie and is a great opportunity,” he says.

Recently, filmmaker Prawal Raman introduced Osama Bin Laden’s picture in the poster of his film 404, starring Naseeruddin Shah’s son Imaad Shah.
