There is good news for all movie buffs that have been eagerly waiting for Anurag Kashyap's 'Black Friday'.
The film has now got a green signal from Supreme Court. The order was passed by an SC Bench of Justices B P Singh and Altamas Kabir after hearing Counsel Rajeev Dhawan, who appeared for the film's producers. The conviction of main accused Tiger Memon's aide Mustaq Moosa Tarani had driven the producers to approach the court again. That's because it was Tarani along with other accused, who had petitioned Bombay HC against the movie alleging that it would lead to public opinion turning against them.
The film's release will however have to wait for three to four weeks by which time the Tada court in Mumbai is expected to complete its pronouncements on the guilt of the accused in the blast cases. But the film need not wait for the Tada court to quantify the sentences for each accused.
'Black Friday' is a movie based on the sequence and events leading to the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts. The movie is itself based on a book by S Hussein Zaidi, narrating the sequence of events starting from three days before the blasts till the police cracked the case.
The movie was completed by May 2004 and all set for release before it was withheld by the court.
