MUMBAI: Director Rakesh Rajan Kumar is set to unravel the real stories behind the rackets marring the education system in his upcoming film titled Marksheet inspired by Ranjit Don, who ran a racket leaking question papers for nationwide exams including the Common Admission Test (CAT) about a decade ago.
"The Ranjit Don case happened about 10 years ago, but such rackets are still active, forging mark sheets, leaking question papers, exploiting the reservation system in educational institutions. So I thought of making a film on it," Rakesh said.
The lead is to be played by newcomer Imran Zahid. The director has also included a love story angle and are looking to cast a fresh face opposite Zahid.
The makers of the film have decided to cast a fresh face opposite Zahid for the film that is not just issue-based but also a love story.
The film will mostly be shot around Delhi University, while parts of it would be filmed in Mumbai, Bangalore , Chandigarh, UP,Bihar and Kolkata.
