In what appears to be a precursor to a biopic on 'bikini killer' Charles Sobhraj, DAR Motion Pictures has acquired the rights of author Farrukh Dhondy's book "The Bikini Murders", which is loosely based on the life of now incarcerated serial killer

"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.
