To his credit go some astounding performances that Bollywood has seen in the recent past. And if the latest news that is doing the rounds is to be believed then it will be a phenomenal story altogether. Buzz has it that Shahrukh Khan might fancy getting into the shoes of worlds most dreaded thug and serial killer Charles Sobhraj!
According to the latest reports, French filmmaker Alain Andre is making a flick on the serial killer and he has wished to cast none other than the undisputed king of Bollywood in the film as the lead role.
“We were sure we wanted Shahrukh Khan … We think he is the best person to portray Sobhraj,” said Andre to whom Sobhraj has given exclusive rights for his biopic.
“Just before Charles got free from Delhi’s Tihar jail, Chantal (his first wife) asked us (Andre and partner Francois) to make a movie,” said the filmmaker. “Charles wanted to be famous, to see his stories in books and novels, which is why he never said ‘no, I’m innocent’,’’ he added.
The director is now looking for a co-producer from Bollywood to make the film, which he plans to set in India, where Sobhraj spent some years.
Director Andre also added that Sobhraj has demanded that he should not be portrayed as a killer in the movie. Sobhraj’s lawyer Isabelle Coutant Peyre said, “I have asked Mr André to finalise a movie project about the life of Charles Sobhraj, with my total control on the contents on his behalf.”
