Two leading filmmakers are rushing to the streaming platform with bio-series on Dawood Ibrahim. While Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainmentâ€™s series is based on investigative journalist author Hussainâ€™s Dongri To Dubai, Ram Gopalâ€™s Varmaâ€™s D Company is based entirely on his own research.
Apparently, Excelâ€™s excursion to Dawoodâ€™s territory began shooting before the pandemic. No information is available on its progress. I asked the author Hussain Zaidi and he said he had no idea of the progress on the project.
Says Ram Gopal Varma, â€œI honestly donâ€™t know what they are making. I read Dongri To Dubai which is very anecdotal in nature, like piecing together a number of crime columns published in newspapers. Also the subject matter of my series D Company is in the public domain. Itâ€™s the understanding and interpretation which will differ. Anyway may the best man win.â€
Incidentally these are not the only cinematic efforts on Dawood. Nikhil Advani made D Day where Rishi Kapoor played the dreaded gangster.
