Special Chabbis is an edgy gritty heist drama, based on the real-life daring heist dated 19th March 1987. An unknown man posing as CBI officer Mon Singh recruited 26 men and executed a daylight raid on the Opera House branch of a reputed jewellery shop in Mumbai, and disappeared with jewellery worth lakhs.
Sources say, Akshay Kumar’s character is based on Mithilesh Kumar Srivastava (better known as Natwarlal). As the folklore goes, Natwarlal was a famous Indian con man known for repeatedly selling Taj Mahal, Red Fort along with Rashtrapati Bhavan. Until his death, no one was able to catch him and even if he did get caught, he always managed to escape.
The character of Natwarlal was also an inspiration for Amitabh Bachchan’s Mr Natwarlal way back in 1979.
