After the debacle of Bombay Velvet at the box office, Anurag Kashyap is all set to start afresh. This time he is making a psycho-thriller which is inspired by the life of Raman Raghav, a psychopathic serial killer in the mid-1960's who operated from Mumbai.
The film has Nawazuddin Siddiqui essaying the role of that dreaded character. Now as per a Mumbai Mirror report, Vicky Kaushal who was last seen in the critically acclaimed 'Masaan' has been roped in to play a cop, modelled on Ramakant Kulkarni, the then Deputy Commissioner Of Police- CID (Crime) who had taken over the investigation and spearheaded a massive operation leading to Raman's eventual arrest and confession.
A source close to the development was quoted as saying, "Vicky auditioned for the role around 10 days ago. Anurag started filming on Sunday in Mumbai, He further added that it's a tough character.
Looks like something interesting is in store!
