A few days ago, the trailer of Arjun Kapoor’s next film, India’s Most Wanted, was released. Directed by Raj Kumar Gupta, the makers introduced the audience to a terrorist who was the mastermind behind 52 bomb blasts in killing 433 people.

The film traces the journey of 5 intelligence officers who set out to nab the terrorist, who is being referred to as ‘India’s Osama’ in the film.

The trailer of the film focused on the journey of the unsung heroes who fought against odds to capture the terrorist. The terrorist was not named in the trailer either. However, sources say that the film is based on the story of the capture of Yasin Bhatkal, co-founder of Indian Mujahideen, who was captured at Nepal border in 2013. Bhatkal was the mastermind behind many attacks including Pune’s German Bakery blast, Bangalore stadium bombing, and blasts in Ahmedabad. He was recently produced in court in Pune, where he pleaded not guilty.

What really piqued the interest in the film is that it is based on true events, and there was a lot of speculation around who this deadly terrorist could be. The fact that there was complete silence around this terrorist also sparked a debate between supporters of political parties and a blame game on inaction on this terrorist ensued.
