It has made news for its nude scene. Now filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar says that his upcoming film Jail has also found inspiration from the hit-and-run cases of Sanjeev Nanda and Alistair Pereira.
“Like my previous films which have had similarities with real life instances, Jail is also a blend of fact and fiction. But it’s not inspired by these cases only,” he told HT City.
Bhandarkar, known for penchant for getting actual people linked with the concept of his films, has also managed to get hold of a real convict for Jail. Antim Totla, a key accused in the Telgi stamp paper scam plays an important role in Jail. Madhur confirmed, “Antim like many others came to me asking for a role and since he was suitable for something in Jail we took him on.”
Meanwhile, the much-hyped nude scene in the film has run into trouble with the Censors. Bhandarkar said: “We are pixelating the nude scene of Neil and have also chopped some others.” Jail is a take on the life inside prisons. Parag Dixit’s (Neil Mukesh) life takes a turn after his arrest in a hit-and run incident. The film releases on November 6.
