Maharashtra Home Ministry on Wednesday gave the confirmation to the news that 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks convict Ajmal Kasab was hanged at 7.30 am at Pune's Yerwada jail. On November 8 President Pranab Mukherjee had rejected his mercy plea, Maharashtra Home Minister RR Patil said. "His execution is a tribute to the victims of 26/11 attacks," said Patil. Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan has been quoted as saying.
While everybody is reacting to his death, we bring to you the new Ajmal Kasab.
Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma was in news a few months ago for his much-talked about film ‘The Attacks of 26/11’. The flick, which is based on the terror attack on Mumbai in 2008, had hit headlines when he started finalizing the cast. Interestingly, the filmmaker, who has several controversial films to his credit, had found an actor who shared a striking resemblance with Ajmal Kasab.
Delhi-based theatre actor Sanjeev Jaiswal is likely to enter Bollywood with this film. "Today is the first day of shoot of most important film of my career, The Attacks of 26/11 because it's on the most important event that ever happened... if not in scale, damage and tragedy, just in sheer complexity, it beats even 9/11',” he had said.
