As per reports, Vishal Bhardwaj is making a film based on the bestselling book ‘The Exile’ penned by Cathy Scott-Clark and Adrian Levy. It is about Al Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden and is said to be the prequel of ‘Zero Dark Thirty’. Talking about the project, the director has expressed his excitement and has said, “Excited to tackle this new subject but also nervous since it’s my biggest challenge with completely new cultures and languages.”
Reportedly the film has been titled as ‘Abbottabad’ and will showcase the time Osama Bin Laden spent between Tora Bora and his last days in Abbottabad. Though it is about of the dreaded gangster, the film will revolve around a man named Ibrahim who was chosen as the host and guard of Bin Laden.
It would be interesting to see who Vishal Bhardwaj chooses to be star in this film.
