Filmmaker Rahul Dholakia recounts his brush with one of the real terrorists during the making of the film LAMHAA. According to the acclaimed director while he was shooting for the film in Kashmir a huge crowd had gathered to witness the shooting. While the shooting was on, a man of short built approached the director and enquired about what was going on. Rahul in his candid style explained about the shoot of his film that is based on the subject of terrorism.
The interesting twist came when the stranger left and some locals told Rahul that the man was a former terrorist who was notorious in his days. This information left Rahul surprised. He says, "I only realized the gravity of the situation when the locals told me that the guy who was enquiring about the shot was a real terrorist."
With such a close encounter with a real terrorist, it seems Rahul couldn't have asked for a better first hand experience of meeting the bad boys.
