When we caught up with the handsome writer-producer-actor and now director, Zeishan, he told us, “Actually MEERUTHIYA GANGSTERS is based on real incidents that happened in Meerut, in 2011, where the desire to become rich in a quick time, makes the six main protagonists being sucked into the crime vortex. We shot on actual locales in Meerut, Noida etc. I shared the idea with Anurag Kashyap and he endorsed the film and in fact he liked it so much that he is even presenting it. This time we have a good musical score with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan singing a track. Even WASSEYPUR has songs, but there is more scope for music in MEERUTHIYA GANGSTERS, as this is less violent and a more polite language, as compared to GANGS OF WASSEYPUR.“

When we queried him about his experience of shooting in Meerut and other places of Western Uttar Pradesh (some refer to as India's wild west!), he had a few interesting anecdotes,” There was once guns being pointed at us, as some locals thought we were exposing them, then at another point of time a geriatric Tau (old uncle in local dialect) got angry as his crops got damaged. However, we went on, as being from Wasseypur, all these things don't scare me,” concluded Zeishan, but promised to talk later about his Sarabjit biopic being directed by MARY KOM fame Omung Kumar.

The keenly awaited MEERUTHIYA GANGSTERS, starring Sanjay Mishra, Jaideep Ahlawat, Ashish Dahiya, Vansh Bhardwaj, Shadab Kamal, Nushrat Bharucha, Ishita Sharma and Mukul Dev, is all set to scorch the screens on 18th September.
