Ali Abbas Zafar is all set for his next, which is based on 1984 riots of India. It also brings the good news for Diljit Dosanjh fans as the filmmaker is in talks with Diljit for fhe film.
The riots of 1984 were triggered by the assassination of the late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi by her two Sikh bodyguards.
A source close to the development said, “Ali has always been attracted to Indian history, both Gunday and Bharat grew from the past. He wanted to make a film around the ’84 riots for a while now and has finally found a subject that has him charged up. Besides producing the period-drama, he is also creatively involved with the script.”
The source also added, “Ali and the team believe he is best suited to play the character and will bring in some local flavor too. Diljit has agreed verbally with a final narration scheduled in a few months. The idea is to roll as soon as normalcy returns”
Now, adding more interest to this is the thing that Diljit have already worked in a Punjabi film which was based on the same subject. The film which was directed by Anurag Singh also won a National Film Award for the Best Feature Film.
