Australian filmmaker Anthony Maras was impressed by the Emmy nominated documentary Surviving Mumbai.

The filmmaker is famous for several acclaimed and award-winning short films, especially the 2011 thriller The Palace. The makers of the movie were the first on ground shooting after the attacks happened, thus sharing with many survivors including staff and guests of the Taj hotel in Mumbai. The filmmaker saw the unedited footage of the interviews made him develop this film along with co-writer John Collee. The filmmaker then took over six months solely researching on the film listening to stories of survivors.

Maras says, “It all started when I Saw the docu Surviving Mumbai. And from there we spent months in Mumbai to research. We got access to transcripts, tapes, talking to survivors. it was important to be well-versed in what happened during the attacks. It was essential to get a real sense of the matters of the heart. Talking to people took a year. Months were spent interviewing people. We stayed at the Taj Hotel for a month while we interviewed survivors, cops and staff of the hotel to get a picture of what happened that night. This film is not a documentary. It was meant to be an emotional ride that makes one feel empathy. What if I were placed in the middle of these attacks? We wanted to see more than statistics and headlines. There are perspectives of the victims here largely.”

The upcoming film is all set to be released on 29th November across India with dubbed versions in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
