Sequel to “Shootout at Lokhandwala” Being Planned

Shootout at Lokhandwala was the dark horse super-hit of 2007. Four years ahead, the producer – director Sanjay Gupta is going to come up with Shootout at Vadala, based on the first ever encounter killing in Mumbai.

This film captures the first official encounter killing of a gangster called Manya Surve in Mumbai. The story is inspired by Hussain Zaidi’s soon to be released book ‘Dongri to Mumbai’. The director will be taking the help of Hussain Zaidi, the acclaimed crime reporter who also wrote a book based on the 1993 bombing in the city which turned into a movie called Black Friday directed by Anurag Kashyap.

Gupta confirmed, “I have wanted to work with Hussain Zaidi, since I first saw Black Friday. It was the most well researched thriller I’d ever seen. I was just waiting for the right chance for us to come together. When I decided to make a sequel to Shootout At Lokhandwala, I immediately thought of Zaidi.”

“When I got to know that Hussain is writing a book on the history of crime in Mumbai, I requested him to let me read portions of it. I found amazing details on Manya Surve, who was gunned down in Vadala. We’ve never had such insight into crime and the underworld before,” added Gupta.

Zaidi will also be in the scripting team of the film. The author confirmed, saying, “Yes, we’ll be working together.”
