Prosenjit to star in political thriller 'Jaffna'?
The film will be directed by Shoojit and produced by John Abraham. The two had earlier teamed up for 'Vicky Donor', which did good business at the box office.
'Jaffna' is based on the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and the civil war in the Sri Lankan city.
It will be a dark political thriller with John playing an Indian intelligence agent," Shoojit told us.
"We have John in the film. We are in talks with Prosenjit. We are trying to work out on his character. As of now there are two things in mind for Prosenjit - a simple, normal citizen of India and other is a police officer or may be something else. But nothing is finalised yet," he said.
Asked if there was a character based on former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, who was assassinated by the LTTE in 1991, Shoojit said, "There is no character of Rajiv Gandhi in the film. We are still in the scripting stage. It is a piece of fiction. We might start shooting by the end of the year."
