John Abraham says, "Rensil and I are collaborating for a film. It's a great script and we will start work on it next year." It has been learnt that the actor-producer has bought the rights of the book, which revolves around a psychopath who wreaks havoc in Mumbai by committing a series of murders during Ganeshotsav.

Besides wielding the directorial baton, D'Silva has also been entrusted with the big screen adaptation. "I have finished writing the script. We will soon start penning the Hindi dialogues. John will also produce the film. All I can say is it's an interesting thriller and is built on a certain personality," says D'Silva.
