When news about marriage of Charles Sobhraj with a 20-year-old Nepali fiancÃƒÂ©e, Nihita Biswas was released I wrote “loving and marrying a killer with approval of a lawyer mother looks a bit fishy!”
Avenues TV aired an interview of Nihita in which she claimed that Sobhraj was innocent and her love was for life. I wasn’t alone on suspecting their affair. Film director Narayan Puri was watching the interview and decided to cash on the story.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I watched the program with the girl saying confidently she knew about his past but yet was ready to marry him and I was very impressed,Ã¢â‚¬Â Puri said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I realized that it’s not only people with a positive image who have fans. It can happen to even a prisoner behind bars. I also realized what an intelligent man Sobhraj was and how his taking to crime was a loss for society.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Puri is going to make a movie named Ã¢â‚¬Å“BadshahÃ¢â‚¬Â based on the love story of Sobhraj and Nihita. In the movie, actor Rajesh Hamal will play the role of a character representing Charles Sobhraj.
We can expect a lot of made-up stories and unrelated scenes in the film as the director told, “My film is not the true story of Charles Sobhraj.”
