Soon after UP gangster Vikas Dubey's encounter, social media was flooded with people discussing the possibility of the case being turned into a Bollywood movie. Producer Sandiip Kapur suggested that a film with Manoj Bajpayee playing the role of the gangster should be made.
"What has happened today in the encounter is beyond cinematic and dramatic experience. @BajpayeeManoj how about playing Vikas Dubey in your next? You'll kill it! #VikasDubey #Encounter @DrKumarVishwas," Kapur had tweeted but now seems to have deleted the same.
Even Bollywood Hungama had carried a news article along these lines. Sharing the article, which has now been pulled down, Manoj Bajpayee tweeted, "Wrong news!".
