On TV when the famous tag line “Nation wants to know” comes, everybody knows that now Arnab Goswami is on air… but do you know who is coming with this gesture in coffee show?
Starring Sunil Grover as a controversial television journalist Arnab Ghosh and Zakir Hussain as the infamous Dawood Ibrahim, Coffee with D is a hilarious parody on the underworld Don’s life. His Character Arnab Ghosh is loosely based on the known journo Arnab Goswami.
The poster subtly depicts the war between two warring nations already.
While Arnab represents apni Bharat Mata, D represents Pakistan.
An Apex Entertainment production, Coffee with D is directed by Vishal Mishra and produced by Vinod Ramani.
The movie will hit the theatres on Jan 6.
Explaining about his role Grover says, “Arnab Goswami is an entertaining journalist, but I am not trying to imitate him. It was the director’s call to name the character Arnab. Subconsciously I might have picked up a few characteristics of Arnab, but it is a fictional film.”
On being asked about the preparation for the movie, actor Zakir Hussain disclosed that he had read many of crime writer S Hussain Zaidi’s books, especially Dongri to Dubai. But his core preparation was based on his research of Dawood through archives and news articles, which helped Zakir understand and pick up Dawood’s behavior and mannerisms.
