Ekta describes 'Shootout at Wadala' as real
Ekta Kapoor says her latest film on the world of gangsters, 'Shootout at Wadala', is more real as compared to her earlier gangster film 'Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai'.
" 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai' was like an 1980s retro blast. We did not really take the real names. It was about the city and about the mentor-prodigy relationships, while 'Wadala' and the shootout series is a realistic take with all its masala. It's not real names, but the incidents are mostly real," the 36-year-old said at the launch of the first look of 'Shootout at Wadala'.
Being promoted as a sequel to 2007-film 'Shootout at Lokhandwala', Ekta's 'Shootout at Wadala' dramatizes the first-ever registered encounter by Mumbai police in 1982.
The film stars Anil Kapoor, John Abraham, Kangana Ranaut, Tusshar Kapoor, Sonu Sood, Mahesh Manjrekar, Ronit Roy and Manoj Bajpai.
