Real to Reel Life

Bollywood off lately is seeking a lot on inspiration from Big sister Hollywood where real life stories are made into movies. The basic idea is to cash in on the free publicity that follows. The latest in the league is the recent Mahajan family feuds.
The Mahajan family has been in the limelight ever since younger brother Pravin Mahajan shot his elder brother and famous politician, Pramod Mahajan. The whole family has been under the media surveillance since then. Pramod Mahajan died after few days and Pravin landed up in jail.
Based on this incident Ranjit Sharma has decided to make a film. The heart of the story will be the strained relationship between the two brothers, Pravin and Pramod, and how it led to one brother killing the other. And then the Rahul Mahajan being admitted for drug overdose.

Some other movies which was inspired from real life are Sarkar inspired by tthe Thakarey family and Gangster inspired from the Abu salem and Minca Bedi

If there is a money trail then it will be bombay- Dubai- Mauritius- Swiss- Cayman Islands.
