Even as the Jessica Lal case re-opens and returns to the limelight, National Award winning filmmaker Madhur Bhandarker has registered the title ‘Jessica’.
“Yes, I have registered the title ‘Jessica’ based on the thought that I have for a film based on the Jessica Lal case, but there is no script yet. Since the case is sub judice, I cannot make a film on in it right now anyway,” said the Page 3 director, known for his penchant for real life issues like the plight of dance bar girls (Chandni Bar) or the celebrity phenomenon (Page 3).
In fact, in Satta, a bar shoot-out sequence is inspired by the Jessica Lal case. “The scene in Satta where a female bartender is shot by a politician’s son is a tribute to Jessica Lal,” he added. Along with ‘Jessica’, he has also registered ‘Chandni Bar 2’ as a title (though there is no script yet for this as well). “Right now I am busy with Corporate and then will shift focus to Signal.”
