The story has been written on the basis of true incidents and real characters.  The film was shot in true locations.  I have played a don in the movie and put on 9 kgs for the role.  As for the quality of the film, everybody will talk about it once it releases.  I have also completed dubbing for the role.  I hope the audience will bless me."
