Rohit Shetty is set to add another feather to his cap as the ace filmmaker is about to make another cop film. He joined hands with Reliance Entertainment to produce a biopic on the former Commissioner of Police, Mumbai, Rakesh Maria.

Speaking about the upcoming project, Rohit mentioned that Rakesh Maria started terror among the criminals. He further informs in the statement that the celebrated police officer's journey is incredible and spans all the way from the 1993 blasts in Mumbai, the underworld menace, to the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks in 2008. "Feel truly honored to be bringing this real-life super cop’s brave & fearless journey to the screen!!" the filmmaker added in the press note. 

Adding to the statement, Maria mentioned that he is excited to relive his journey, especially when it's being made by a brilliant director like Rohit Shetty.

Shetty, one of the most loved filmmakers in the Bollywood, shared the an image on Instagram that features him with Maria and captioned it, " From solving the 93 Mumbai blast case, fearlessly facing the mumbai underworld during the late 90s to interrogating the lone surviving terrorist, Ajmal Kasab & standing strong for his city during the 26/11 attacks... Rakesh Maria has been a name synonymous with courage and valour! Feel honoured to be bringing this real life supercop's journey to screen!!! (Sic)."
