The gang of Shootout At Wadala took centrestage as they gave a sneak peek of the film at the Awards night
Dressed in black with a red tilak and dark glasses, John Abraham made a striking entry as gangster Manya Surve from the film Shootout At Wadala. He was wheeled in a decorated hand cart to the stage as his group of taporis danced to the tunes of Ala re ala. Produced by Shobha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor and Sanjay Gupta, the first look of the dreaded gangster story was unveiled at the 19th Annual Colors Screen Award night.
Set to release in May, the film is based on the real-life action drama, the first-ever registered encounter by Mumbai police, when gangster Manya Surve was shot dead at the Vidyalankar Institute of Technology in Wadala, Mumbai in 1982.
Producer-director Sanjay Gupta spoke about his gang and introduced them. Sonu Sood who reprises the character of Dawood Ibrahim looked every bit of the don. Anil Kapoor as ACP Isaque Bagwan, looked dapper in a suit and dark glasses, as he glided down the stage from a height. Tusshar dressed in khaki pants and maroon shirt, plays Sheikh Munir in the film followed next. Manoj Bajpayee reprises the role of Sabir, Ibrahim’s sibling. He was dressed in a white suit and dark glasses. Newbie Siddhanth Kapoor looked his part, dressed as a tapori and Ronit Roy, who plays Inspector Raja Tambat wore plain clothes. The team walked menacingly down the stage towards the audience, marking the end of an exciting show.
