The recent terror attacks in Mumbai, which claimed almost 200 lives, looked so unreal. It was much more than the scenes from thriller films. The barbaric act of the terrorists has left even the filmmakers gasping for air. Producer cum director Vikram Bhatt is one such filmmakers, who is still trying to come to terms with the reality.
Vikram said that the terror attacks would make a terrible film, as it's just a tale of defeat. The NSG commandos rescued many hostages from the hotels and killed the terrorists but it can't be called a victory, as harm was already done. He said that it would have been a victory had the terrorist out-powered at the CST station. So, he thinks making a film on such a sad incident would be a bad idea.
Vikram even compared the magnanimosity of the attacks to the 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre that took over a thousand Indian lives. He said that it is the saddest time of his life.
It was director Ram Gopal Varma who invited controversy by visiting Taj Mahal Hotel along with actor Riteish Deshmukh and Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh aftermath the tragic event. Rumours started spreading like wildfire that Ramu was planning to make a film on the terror attacks with Riteish in the lead though the filmmaker denied.
