Mumbai: Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma says he has stuck to authentic facts for ‘The Attacks of 26/11’, his movie based on the 2008 Mumbai terror attack.

A 15-minute sequence from the movie was showcased here Friday.

"As much as possible, I would say that it is a complete, true representation of what happened and the reason for that is most of the sources are either eyewitness accounts or Kasab`s (terrorist Ajmal Amir Kasab) confession to police charge sheets to the judgment copy...," Varma said Friday at the screening.

"So most of it is authentic information. I did not try to suggest anything which is not in the popular knowledge," he added.

Meanwhile, asked about the opposition he faced during the making of the film, Varma said: "Actually the reverse is true. I think a lot of people went out of their way to co-operate in this film`s shooting, including authorities."

"If (there are) some people who have a problem, it is more of a misunderstanding and misconception. They don`t know about my correct intention behind this film. But most people have incredibly co-operated in the making of this film," he added.

In the movie, Varma has shown the exact sequence of events of 26/11, the night when 10 terrorists created havoc in Mumbai, killing 166 people.
