Actor-director Mahesh Manjrekar is likely to be seen in Sanjay
Gupta's crime film, Shootout at Wadala.
Directed by Gupta, the movie is a sequel to 2007 film
Shootout at Lokhandwala. The ensemble cast of the second
instalment of the film includes John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Kangna
Ranaut, Tusshar Kapoor and Ronit Roy. Shootout at
Lokhandwala will dramatise the first registered encounter by
Mumbai police, where gangster Manya Surve was shot dead in 1982 in
Wadala. Gupta has requested Mahesh to do a role in the sequel,
after the latter helped one of the lead actors John Abraham to
brush up on his Marathi.
"I have asked Mahesh to choose a role for himself. Our
association goes back a long way and I wanted to continue it with
Shootout at Wadala. Also, he is a superb actor. So he will
be part of the film for sure," Gupta said. In the film, John plays
the role of gangster Manya Surve, while Anil Kapoor plays ACP
Isaque Bagwan. The film goes on the floors in March and will
release in December this year.
