Actor Manish Goel is all set to feature in the upcoming film ‘Hanak’, where he will play the role of late gangster Vikas Dubey.

The film is based on the life of the gangster. It is an adaptation of the book ‘Main Kanpur Wala’ authored by writer Kapil Mridul. The film will be directed by Manish Vatssalya. The director has clarified that he is not interested in glorifying the criminal in the film.


Talking to Indian Express, Manish said, “The society has to always be a mirror reflecting the mindset of its inhabitants. Unfortunately, we as the film fraternity have started glorifying the evil and have started affecting impressionable minds of the viewers taking them closer to vices. I felt it was my duty to present the crime in its most naked and gruesome form so that the viewers are repelled by it.”

The film is being co-produced by Amit Gupta and Akash Gupta of Sarkar Productions India. The shooting for Hanak will commence on 27th November.
