Earlier, on the 11th-anniversary of the terror attack, veteran actor Anupam Kher who plays the role of Chef Hemant Oberoi met the real-life hero Chef, who saved the lives of many people.
“Heroes don’t have the need to be known as heroes, they just do what heroes do because it is right and it must be done.” I portray #ChefHemantOberoi in @hotelmumbaifilm. 11years back, today, he saved many lives at @TajMahalMumbai. I salute him & all the other #RealLifeHeroes. ? pic.twitter.com/ajMeHFS3dF— Anupam Kher (@AnupamPKher) November 26, 2019
The terror attack took place on November 26, 2008, in Mumbai. On this day, the city came to a standstill when 10 Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) carried out a series of coordinated attacks.
Amongst the places targetted were Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) railway station, Cama Hospital, Nariman House business and residential complex, Leopold Cafe, Taj Hotel and Tower, and the Oberoi-Trident Hotel.
The ghastly attacks lasted for four days killing 166 people and injuring over 300. While nine terrorists were killed by security forces, Ajmal Kasab was captured alive and sentenced to death.
'Hotel Mumbai' also stars Armie Hammer. Presented by Zee Studios and Purpose Entertainment, the movie was released on November 29 in Hindi, English, Tamil, and Telugu.
