World Television Premier of 'Shootout at Wadala

MAX, the premium Hindi movies and special events channel brings to you the World television Premier of this year’shardcore action gangster film, ‘SHOOTOUT AT WADALA’ on Friday, 18th October at 9PM and Sunday 20th October at 1PM only on MAX.


The movie revolves around the character of ManoharSurve alias ManyaSurve, a decent college going student, good in studies and very success oriented. Manohar’s fate changes when he tries to save his older brother,BhargavSurve from a scuffle with Bhaskar's goons. The brothers end up killing one of the goons for which they land up in jail. The movie then turns into a plot of dare devilry and strategic planning and thus gives birth to ManyaSurve. This film is based on a true story about the first-ever registered encounter by the Mumbai Police, which took place on November 1, 1982.


Speaking about playing the central character,ManoharSurve,who turns into the gangster ManyaSurve, John Abraham says “The first day I met Sanjay Gupta (director) he had a newspaper article in his hand which was about a Bombay gangster called ManyaSurve.I read the article, looked at Sanjay and told him, this is a film we shoulddefinitely make. I did loads of research as it’s important to have the right look and right performance graph in this film. These roles don’t happen every day and I took it with utmost seriousness.”


Talking about the action and thriller sequence which is an integral scene in the movie and is shot in the midst of a dhobi ghat, Anil Kapoor recollects, “It was a very gripping and an extremely exciting sequence. The floor was very slippery and I was wondering how I would do the scene where I have to run fast. I am very proud of that sequence. The entire film has been shot at many real locations and that’s the reason there is a sense of rawness, intensity and drama.”


John Abraham also recollects the accidentwhich took place on the first day of shoot, “One of the guys I was fighting in the scene hit his head on my nose and it was bleeding like a tap on the first day of the shoot. The shot is still in the film, and if you notice carefully my nose is swollen to twice its size. It was very painful. I guess accidents are important to make a film work and I think sometimes are lucky for a film. It’s happened to me practically in every film of mine which has worked.”


Watch this crime thriller with a punch of adrenaline rush in the World Television Premiere of Shootout at Wadalaon Friday, 18th October at 9PM and Sunday, 20th October at 1PM only on MAX.
