" 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai' was like an 1980s retro blast. We did not really take the real names. It was about the city and about the mentor-prodigy relationships, while 'Wadala' and the shootout series is a realistic take with all its masala. It's not real names, but the incidents are mostly real," the 36-year-old said at the launch of the first look of 'Shootout at Wadala'.
Being promoted as a sequel to 2007-film 'Shootout at Lokhandwala', Ekta's 'Shootout at Wadala' dramatizes the first-ever registered encounter by Mumbai police in 1982.
The film stars Anil Kapoor, John Abraham, Kangana Ranaut, Tusshar Kapoor, Sonu Sood, Mahesh Manjrekar, Ronit Roy and Manoj Bajpai.
