Contiloe Pictures acquires the rights of the bestselling book ‘Black Tornado: The Three Sieges of Mumbai 26/11’
~ Based on Sandeep Unnithan provoking study of events, Contiloe Pictures plans to develop the book into a premium digital series ~
The show will be a multi episode digital drama series that will explore the various facets of the attacks which spread terror across India’s financial capital, and how Indians – from ordinary civilians to highly-trained commandos – responded.
“Black Tornado encapsulates key details of the three nights and the operation around the multiple sieges. While our nation saw the graphic imagery of terror on TV, they know little about the counter–insurgency by our commandos and the human interest stories behind these images. We are looking forward to working with Sandeep, the author of the book, closely to bring authenticity to the audience”, said Abhimanyu Singh, Founder and CEO, Contiloe Pictures.
