While Pooja accepts that Randeep’s character in the film is called Charles, she insisted that the basic premise has nothing to do with the serial conman. “It is not Sobhraj’s biopic. The entire film focuses on his infamous jailbreak. The episode is part of the public domain and I purchased the rights to the story from the then Delhi DCP, Amod Kanth,” Bhatt said.

A source from the film’s sets in Udaipur, where Randeep and co-star Richa Chadda are currently shooting, said, “From whatever portions we have shot, it is clear that the film has resemblances to Sobhraj’s life. According to the script, we will try and portray certain aspects from his romantic relationships as well.”

Speaking on Randeep Hooda’s claims of the film being a biopic, Bhatt said, “An actor cannot be the spokesperson for a director or producer. Randeep’s character is called Charles but we are going to put a disclaimer in the beginning about the film being fictional. I cannot clear each and every report that comes out and I am fine with any confusion on whether it is biopic or not.”
