Bollywood films inspired actual happenings in the underworld: Coincidence?

NEW DELHI: The underworld has been one of the favorite themes of Bollywood in the last decade and several films and characters have been directly or indirectly inspired by the dons - whether it is Dawood Ibrahim, Maya Bhai, or Abu Salem.

Recently there were reports that Abu Salem was shot at and injured inside the Tajola jail in Navi Mumbai, and coincidentally Dinesh P. Bhosle?s film ?Calapor? revolves around similar happenings in a jail. It is a modern day setting of a prison and deals with various intricate details of conspiracies behind the bars. Priyanshu Chatterjee would be seen in a never before seen avatar of a gangster who conspires to kill a sharp shooter in the jail.

Speaking about the film, the director said "Well, it is a pure coincidence that Abu Salem was shot, and my film Calapor will provide a clear view to the audience about the happenings of a jail. It will provide the audience a keyhole view inside prison"

Slated for release on 2 August, the plot of the movie is about reformation in a prison through the medium of dance and drama.

Produced by Prasad Creations and directed by Dinesh P Bhonsle, it stars Ritupana Sengupta, Priyanshu Chatterjee, Raghubir Yadav, Harsh Chhaya, Binny Sharma, P. Subbaraju, Aziz Naseer and introducing Aakash Sharma.

Meanwhile in another film - Apoorva Lakhia?s Zanjeer 2.0 - for which the online trailer is to be launched today, Atul Kulkarni?s character is inspired by none other than the slain ace journalist J-Dey. 

Slated for release in 6 September, it stars an elite ensemble cast of Ram Charan, Sanjay Dutt, Priyanka Chopra, Prakash Raj, Mahie Gill and Atul Kalkarni amongst others.

Keeping the trademarks of Indian cinema intact but with a contemporary twist, Zanjeer 2.0is apparently premised on the subject of ?Oil Mafia? and will see the rugged and ripped Ram Charan battle his way to eliminate the deadly cartels.
