Akshay Kumar’s new film, helmed by Neeraj Pandey, is based on a real-life incident that involves depicting the Central Bureau of Investigation as part of the storyline. And now the investigating agency has ordered the makers to hold a special screening of the film to check if it has been showed in poor light.
The film is based on a jewellery heist in 1983 Mumbai where con men posing as CBI officials robbed stores of crores of rupees. While Manoj Bajpayee plays a CBI official, Akshay essays a fake officer.
A source says, “Given the circumstances these days, no one associated with film projects want to take even the minutest risk of being misrepresented. Everyone wants to make sure they are presented in good light and their sentiments are not hurt. No wonder that even the CBI wants to see the film before its scheduled release.”
According to sources associated with the film, the screening will take place early next week. The insider adds, “If there are any objections or any changes to be made, they will be duly carried out before the release date.”
