Film based on life of Sunanda Pushkar?

  • Published in Entertainment
Speculation is rife on whether or not a Kannada-Tamil bi-lingual film being directed by A.M.R. Ramesh – Game in Kannada and Oru Melliya Kodu in Tamil – is based on the life of Sunanda Pushkar, wife of the former Union Minister Shashi Tharoor, who died under mysterious circumstances.

The rumour mill has been grinding after actor-turned-politician Khushboo sought a clarification from Ramesh and the latter refused to divulge the story to her.

When the production team contacted Kushboo for a role in the film, the actor reportedly sought to know whether it was based on Ms. Pushkar’s life. Sources in the film industry have started linking Gamewith Pushkar, considering that a part of the film is set in a forensic lab in Chennai. Manisha Koirala plays a Kashmiri girl in the film. Even during the film shoot in Bengaluru, Mr. Ramesh refused to divulge the storyline. “It is a murder mystery. Manisha gets murdered in the film and Arjun investigates this complicated case,” he said. This is the first time Ms. Koirala is acting in a Kannada film.

Referring to the problem he faced during the release of Attahasa , based on the life of sandalwood smuggler Veerappan; Ramesh said did not want to court legal complications by revealing the plot. “I had to shell out Rs. 25 lakh because somebody leaked the plot,” he explained.
