Earlier, Manoj had reacted to Kapur's tweet and had said: "I have been hearing that a lot of people are discussing me in the role. If the character and script are nice, then playing any real life character would be fun. The said person's life has been very theatric and it would be very interesting to bring his life to the big screen. Let's see what happens. I am excited to play this character."
It is being reported that Sandiip is in process of acquiring the rights to make the biopic of the gangster. However, the actor denied that he is doing any such film. He called it 'wrong news.'
