Ram Gopal Varma’s prestigious project "The Attacks of 26/11" celebrated the release of its audio album couple of days back at Leopold Cafe, Mumbai. The venue has its significance as this was one of the places where armed terrorists struck during the Nov 26, 2008 carnage at Mumbai. Ram Gopal Varma revealing the reason behind choosing the venue for the audio launch said "It was a very tragic event and the reason why we are here today is when I met the owner Farzad Jehani he shared his experience and his perspective of what happened. So I thought I should approach him to play him in the film."
However Farzad Jehan, the owner of the cafe said he was skeptical about featuring in the film. Recollecting the happenings he said “When Ramu approached me, I was reluctant. I was scared. I didn’t want to go through the trauma again. But Ramu convinced me and said he wants to show the world, the trauma we went through.". Film stars all new cast except for Nana Patekar, who is playing the role of Joint Commissioner of Police Rakesh Maria. Nana says "Rakesh is my friend and I did not have to walk like him or copy him, I had to adapt his attitude. I have immense respect for all the policemen. They work so hard and they get minimum salary. I respect them a lot,". Five music directors along with Sukhwinder Singh, Rooshin Dalal, Kaizad Gherda, Amar Mohile, Vishal Khosla and Sushil Khosla scored music. "The Attacks of 26/11" is slated for March 1 release.
