Saradha scam likely to get big screen adaptation
Panaji, Nov 23: Filmmaker Aneisha Sharma, the wife of Saradha chit fund scam accused Sadananda Gogoi, has expressed desire to make a film on the infamous Rs 2,500 crore fraud.
Sharma, whose film 'A Dream Never Dies' opened the non-feature film section of Indian Panorama at the ongoing International Film Festival of India here, told PTI that her film on Saradha chit fund scam will chronicle how soft targets like her husband are allegedly trapped.
The screenplay for 'A Dream Never Dies' is written by Aneisha's husband, who is behind bars now in connection with the scam. Gogoi was arrested in September this year by CBI on allegations of "conspiracy and misappropriation of funds."
"My husband is a soft target and his arrest was a political trap," she alleged. "He is one creative person and so many people are praying for him. The creativity is never going to die. Creativity will go on. If God is there, then justice will be done. He (Sadananda) would have loved to be here (at IFFI)," she said.
Aneisha's movie screened at IFFI is about families who suffer because of the insurgency problem in eastern India. She said that she got to know about the subject while counselling 30 families in an insurgency-prone area.
