'Just now finished shooting Kasab's hanging... Must say it felt really eerie that the reel hanging happened hardly a week after the real hanging,' Varma wrote on Twitter.
Varma, 50, is busy shooting the movie, which is based on how 10 terrorists came to Mumbai and executed their plan of unleashing terror in key areas of the country's business capital.
Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone terrorist who was caught alive, was hanged Nov 21. Varma has included that part in his movie too. 'The Attacks of 26/11' features Nana Patekar and Sanjeev Jaiswal. A 15-minute footage of the movie was recently screened for policemen and attack victims.
