Ashish R Mohan visited gangster Babloo Shrivastav in Rai Bareilly to take inputs for film based on him

Director Ashish R Mohan (of Khiladi 786 fame) is leaving no stone unturned to make his next film, based on dreaded UP gangster Babloo Shrivastav. And we hear that last month Mohan made a trip to Rai Bareilly to meet up with the goon.

Sources say the director spent two days with Babloo to know more about his life for the film’s script.

Our informer says, “Ashish had met Babloo in December to inform him about his intention of making a film on him as he found his life very fascinating. Babloo agreed. Last month again, Ashish met him in UP to gather information so he could make the script as authentic as it gets.”

Apparently, the director has got some vital information from the gangster himself to include in the film.

Ashish had befriended Babloo through his close aide Vinay Sharma at the Patiala House Court in Delhi where the gangster approved the idea of his life story to be made into a film.

The director refuses to comment on the matter and states, “I am scripting the film and once I will be ready, I will make an announcement.”
