"DAR Motion Pictures, producer of films like 'Dangerous Ishq' and 'Haunted 3D', has acquired the rights of 'The Bikini Murders' which is reportedly based on the story of Siberian," a press release issued by the company here said.
DAR Motion Pictures is a wholly-owned subsidiary of DAR Capital, which operates a fully-integrated production and distribution model. Sobhraj is currently in a Nepalese prison after the Supreme Court of that country in 2010 held him guilty for the murder of a US citizen.
Earlier attempts to make a movie on Sobhraj came a cropper owing to objections raised by his lawyers.
