Indo Asian News Service

New Delhi, Jan 25 (IANS) Mahesh Bhatt's son Rahul's book "Headley And I", about the latter's friendship with 26/11 conspirator David Headley, will is to be made into a movie. Producer Sunil Bohra has bought the rights of the book.

Rahul co-authored the book with Hussain Zaidi and it puts light on Rahul's troubled relationship with his father and how Headley filled that vacuum for a while.

The deal was facilitated and negotiated by the literary and talent agency CAA KWAN for an undisclosed amount making this one of the biggest deals of it's kind for the sale of any non-fiction book for film rights.

"When my cousin Abhishek (Vyas) read the book and told me about it's potential, I got in touch with Hussain and his agency. I was almost immediately drawn to the concept and knew that this would really work with our evolving Indian audiences," Bohra said in a statement.

"It's going to be a mainstream production because the world wants to know what the conspiracy really was and about what happens to an innocent guy when he gets involved in the conspiracy of this magnitude.

"The book reads like a documentary and we will use the same format for our screenplay. We will have Hussain around while shooting. I'm looking forward to kick starting this project soo," he added.

Zaidi is looking forward to the story being told to a mass audience.

"I strongly believe in Mr. Bohra's vision for the film based on my book. After both 'Black Friday' and 'Shootout At Wadala', I am pleased that this story of mine will also be made into a film!" said Zaidi.

Pakistani-American Headley received a 35 year jail term Thursday by a Chicago court.
