27th September 2017

On Tuesday Vishal Bhardwaj revealed that he is excited as well as nervous about his next ambitious film project. Yes, we will witness yet another masterpiece as this time it is an international subject as this movie is said to be a prequel to 'Zero Dark Thirty'.

The film is actually based on the bestselling book 'The Exile' by Cathy Scott-Clark and Adrian Levy on international terrorist Al Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden. The film is titled 'Abbottabad' and it is believed that it will be about the time Bin Laden spent in between Tora Bora and his last days in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

The 52-year-old director said, "Excited to tackle this new subject but also nervous since it's my biggest challenge with completely new cultures and languages."

Moreover, the real-life story will be told from the perspective of Ibrahim, the man who was chosen to host and guard Bin Laden for many years. The film will be co-produced by the Junglee Pictures and Vishal Bhardwaj. While shoot dates are not fixed yet. If this film is executed successfully, this will be the first international topic on reality covered by India. The cast and crew for the movie are yet not decided.
