The film is based on a chapter from journalist-turned-author S Hussain Zaidi’s book, Mafia Queens of Mumbai. Vishal had purchased rights to the chapter and wrote the script for Deepika who is in an “advanced stage of discussion” with the makers of the film.

Sapna Didi had planned Dawood’s execution during a cricket match in Sharjah to avenge her husband’s death.Unfortunately for her, he got wind of her plans and killed her days before she could get to him.

The film is expected to go on the floors by the end of this year.
