Renowned director Rakeysh Mehra of Rang De Basanthi fame is making a film titled Dilli 6 with Abhishek Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor in the lead roles. Everyone concerned with the film are tight-lipped regarding the plot of the story.
But then, it is very difficult keep everything under wraps in Bollywood always. A little bird sings that Dilli 6 represents Chandini Chowk and its pin code ends with 6. This is also the place where the director spent his childhood.
Dilli 6 is based on the killings by an alleged Monkey Man that occurred in Delhi in 2001. The attacker, described as part man, part monkey, had apparently struck at 65 locations. The attacks had taken place at night, and the creature targeted people sleeping on the roofs of their houses.
Knowing Rakeysh Mehra’s filming skills, we have to await the release of the film to know how the episode of Monkey Man has been woven into the fabric of the film’s story.
