  • Dholakia says ‘YES’ to alcohol
    The Parzania director has decided to bring out the real story behind the illegal liquor trade in
    Gujarat fuelled by the Government’s age-old prohibition laws
    His hard-hitting film Parzania exposed the real-life experience of a 10-year-old Parsi boy who
    disappeared during communal riots in Gujarat and won Rahul Dholakia the National Film Award.
    Sticking to his genre of filmmaking, Dholakia is gearing up to raise the bar a notch higher.

    This time, Dholakia is all set to address a state-wide issue of
    prohibition of alcohol in Gujarat and how it fuels the rampant illegal
    selling and consuming of liquor.

    Our source elaborated, “Rahul Dholakia is keen to make a movie on
    the prohibition of alcohol in Gujarat as this topic has been largely
    unexplored. The filmmaker has roped in two Ahmedabad-based
    journalists to write the film.

    The script is packed with a decade-long research on the issue namely
    – the impact of dry laws on socio, religious and cultural ethos. From
    Gandhi to Modi, the liquor policy in the state has been consistent.

    The illegal trade of liquor in Gujarat is estimated to be over 12 to
    15,000 crore, which is almost five times the state’s health and
    education budget. Irrespective of the political party that comes to
    power, no leader likes to tread on this sensitive issue.

    The film covers a gamut of related issues ranging from revenues to religion, the politics of
    prohibition to communalism and mafiaraaj.

    The film is inspired by the modus operandi of real life gangsters, bureaucrats, politicians and
    police officers, spanning the last two decades. It will have three lead characters.

    Casting is still under process though. The film will be shot in the narrow by-lanes of Gujarat and
    the seashore of Maharashtra as it has a strong link to the Bombay blasts.”

    When contacted, Dholakia confirmed the proceedings and added, “We are already done with
    the first draft. I am pretty excited about the film. It will go on floors very soon.”

    When asked why he selected this particular issue to address, Dholakia said, “It is a question
    one needs to answer. The filmwon’t be an intellectual discussion on the subject but will be very

    I plan to show the entire nexus of illegal liquor business in the state, which is thriving because of
    the prohibition. In India there are many layers to such issues with the communal divide, the land
    mafia and other factors, everything is somehow related to alcohol.”
    raees is an arbic word which means leader it also means (rich) and it ,s also a muslim name so it my be his name

  • at last KING returned to his home it seems fine everything.another legend film is on the way from the epic collaboration of KING SRK and haters are trembling.I think his every next film will collect at least 300cr in India and 200cr in overseas.although KING KHAN SRK’s name is enough to fill the theatre but KING always chooses great stories.everyone just give a bow to KING SRK.

  • Looks like it’ll be treat to watch SRK as a ‘FAN’…
    The film vl be full on entertainment…
