On Wednesday, Sanjay Gupta began scripting Rakshak, which revolves around a vigilante superhero. The filmmaker has acquired the rights of the graphic novel, Rakshak — A Hero Among Us, about a former marine commando. He is writing the screenplay along with author Shamik Dasgupta and Chetan Naidu.

The heavy downpour proved to be a source of inspiration to get him going. Gupta has also wrapped up the first draft of the third outing of the Shootout franchise after Shootout at Lokhandwala (2007) and Shootout at Wadala (2013).

In gratitude


Amitabh Bachchan, who is keeping fans up-to-date about his well-being via social media, posted a poem of appreciation for healthcare personnel. Big B wrote, "Pristine white their layered dress, dedicated to serve. God-like incarnations and companions of the sufferer. They have erased their egos and have embraced us in care. They fly the flags of humanity (sic)." The veteran superstar continues to be flooded with messages from well-wishers. "My gratitude and love. I put my hands together and say thank you," he added.
