Breaking news is the new theme of Bollywood!
New Delhi: From Jessica Lal murder case to Mumbai terror attacks, Bollywood seems to have taken a fancy for the breaking news with a number of filmmakers inspired by headline making stories.
With the success of Anurag Kashyap`s `Dev D`, Dibakar Banerjee`s `Oye Lucky Lucky Oye` and `Love, Sex Aur Dhokha` the industry, often accused of forgoing reality for escapism, for once has found a success formula in news stories.
Kashyap, who has already made `Black Friday`, a film on 1993 Mumabi serial blasts, incorporated stories like hit-and- run case, drug abuse and infamous DPS MMS scandal in his `Dev D`, which was a modern take on Sharatchandra`s `Devdas`.
Similarly, Banerjee was inspired by the exploits of a small time Delhi thief Bunty to make his national-award- winning film `Oye Lucky Lucky Oye`.
