Biopic on Charles Sobhraj in offing?

Last Updated: Monday, April 22, 2013 - 21:03

Mumbai: 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.
