The 53-year-old filmmaker took to Twitter to make the announcement of his new film, which he says will focus on the actual truth behind the underworld and Bollywood nexus.
"My next Hindi film after 'Veerappan' is 'Government' and one of its characters will be Dawood Ibrahim," he tweeted along with a link giving plot details and character list of the movie.

Apart from the two main characters, Varma said the film will feature characters based on Anees Ibrahim, Chhota Rajan's wife Sujatha, Monica Bedi, National Security Adviser Ajit Doval, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Bala Saheb Thackeray, Abu Salem and gangster-turned-politician from Mumbai, Arun Gawli.
"'Government' will portray Dawood Ibrahim, Chota Shakeel, Abu Salem and others as realistically as I portrayed Veerappan," Varma said.

He said 'Government' will show "the post split intergang rivalry between Rajan and Dawood which got further complicated because of the unexpected rise of Abu Salem who challenged the authority of Chota Shakeel."
