Mahesh Bhatt’s next film ‘Marksheet’ based on education scam

Mahesh Bhatt has released the first poster of his movie ‘Marksheet.’ The movie is based on the scam kingpin, which is known to be the biggest education scams in India.

The movie is inspired by the real story of Ranjit Don’s case, who run a racket of leaking question papers for nation-wide exams including the Common Aptitude Test (CAT). His case was in headlines around a decade ago but reports reveal that he still runs the racket.

The movie is directed by Rakesh Ranjan, who came on big screen with his debut film “Gandhi to Hitler.” The role of Ranjit Don is being played by Imran Zahid, which is also his debut film.

Here is the tweet by Mahesh Bhatt:

Though, the film’s shoot is in continuation from 2012 but its first poster is released this year.

“The Ranjit Don case happened about 10 years ago, but such rackets are still active, forging marksheets, leaking question papers, exploiting the reservation system in educational institutions. So I thought of making a film on it.”Rakesh told PTI.

He also clarified that it is not a biopic and the main character of the film is fictional.

Though during the shoot of Markesheet Imran Zahid was also involved in a parallel film of Mahesh Bhatt “Jism 2.”
