A few years back, the Maharashtra Government decided to put to auction whatever the properties were remaining in Mumbai which belonged to underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, hunted by India for the past many years. The don, who is said to be living in exile, has instilled fear in the minds of the public to such an extent that not a single soul turned out to bid for the auction on the said day.
Sources say that it won’t be long before Dawood is caught by the law-enforcing agencies. In the meantime, Bollywood has finally mustered the courage to make film on the life and times of Dawood Ibrahim. Reports say that Akshay Kumar, the ever-green hunk and ‘master of martial arts, is all set to play the underworld don’s character in the film.
Ileana, the Tollywood queen who is making her comeback to Tamil films opposite Vijay in the Shankar-directed ‘Nanban‘, has been roped in to play Dawood’s mistress opposite Akshay Kumar. It is said that Ileana agreed to the offer the moment it was made to her.
It remains to be seen, though, whether the film’s shooting proceeds in an unhindered manner given the fact the clout the underworld don still has in the commercial capital of the country!
