Mumbai, March 1 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 here 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” dramatises the first-ever registered encounter by Mumbai police in 1982.
The film stars Anil Kapoor, John Abraham, Kangna Ranaut, Tusshar Kapoor, Sonu Sood, Mahesh Manjrekar, Ronit Roy and Manoj Bajpai.
