Ram Gopal Varma had earlier announced that he would make a movie on the 2008 Mumbai attacks. The director is now at it. He is busy working on a Hindi film titled The Attacks of 26/11, which is also being simultaneously made in Telugu as 26/11 India Pai Daadi. He has released the first look trailer of both versions last weekend.
The 2.04-minutes trailer of the crime-thriller 26/11 India Pai Daadi gives more hint about its story and screenplay when compared to the video of its Hindi version The Attacks of 26/11, which is about 7-minutes long. This Telugu video unveils on how a group of Pakistani terrorists captures a boat of Indian fishermen and how they enter the Taj Hotel in Mumbai and kill the innocent guests in the hotel.
The video shows that Ram Gopal Varma has done extensive research on the 2008 Mumbai attacks before he prepared a script for film 26/11 India Pai Daadi. In his press release, Ram Gopal Varma says, "The truth of why I went to the Taj at the time was nothing but my curiosity to witness a scene of an unprecedented happening."

The filmmaker adds, "Now after all these years after the whole truth has been uncovered by the investigators and by the virtue of an expensive knowledge I have gathered from various sources about the actual truths behind those attacks from both authorised and eye witness accounts, I developed a desire to film the actual story of those attacks."
