The South Africa India Film and Television Awards is already underway and audiences were treated to screening of the Shootout series of films – Apoorva Lakhia’s and Sanjay Gupta’s landmark gangster films, Shootout at Lokhandwala and the more recent Shootout at Wadala.
Shootout at Lokhandwala (2007) and Shootout at Wadala (2013) are both based on true stories of two notorious gangsters from the Mumbai’s murky underworld. While the former starred Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt, the latter had John Abraham playing the lead.
According to an official spokesperson, “The Shootout screenings was organised to bring Indian film industry experts to film students and enthusiasts in South Africa so that they can share their expertise and knowledge about film making, production and other aspects of the business of cinema.”
