The man you see in the photo above is not Christian Bale from 'American Hustle' but our very own Randeep Hooda in his new look for the movie on the bikini killer Charles Sobhraj.
Wind back the clock to the 1970s and 80s when the serial killer Charles Sobhraj was apprehended by the Indian authorities and chucked inside the prison. But he led a luxurious lifestyle behind bars and pulled off a daring prison break out of Delhi’s Tihar Jail in 1986 by drugging the guards.
It’s a tale that has captured the fancy of Bollywood filmmakers for quite some time and there’s been some tug of war as to who will make the film first.
Pooja Bhatt was producing the film titled Bad but dissociated herself from the project over creative differences. Director Prawaal Raman however didn’t junk the movie and continued it under a different banner and different title: Main Aur Charles.
We like Randeep Hooda’s suave 80s’ look in these stills, even though that SBI Car Loan billboard in the background is a clear anachronism.
Full marks for the look, though.
The shooting of Main Aur Charles has been wrapped.
