Black FridayBlack Friday! The film will finally see the light of the day! Recreating Mumbai of the early 90’s was one of the most difficult and significant aspects of the film BLACK FRIDAY. One had to keep a lot of things in mind like there should be no usage of cell phones or visibility of them in the film.

Even the hoardings and cars used were restricted to the 1993 set up. One would only find Maruti 800 or Vans as cars used in the film as was prevalent those days. “Since there were a lot of street shots in the film one had to be very careful, in particular of the hoardings and cars used in the set up “says Anurag Kashyap, the director of Black Friday.

BLACK FRIDAY is based on the events leading up to and the investigation thereafter of the 1993 Bombay bomb blasts. The 1993 Bombay blasts left 257 dead and 1400 injured and brought into the spotlight the mafia-terrorist nexus prevalent today. Based on S. Hussain Zaidi’s book on the same subject, the film takes one into the heart of the conspiracy behind the Bombay blasts and the massive follow-up investigation by giving detailed account of planning, execution and back-end operations of the same. Produced by Arindam Mitra and directed by Anurag Kashyap, the film features the stellar acting talents of Kay Kay Menon, Pavan Malhotra and Aditya Srivastava playing Inspector Rakesh Maria, Tiger Memon and police informer ‘Badshah Khan’ respectively.

The film is slated to release on 9th February 2007.
