Mumbai: Filmmaker Hansal Mehta says that to make his film Omerta, which is based on terrorist Omar Saeed Sheikh's life, as authentic as possible, he purchased real-life footage from a number of sources.
Footage of the Kandahar attack, media footage following the 9/11 attack in the US and other clips were acquired from a whole range of sources by the film's team.
"When it comes to the film, everything has to be credible. To ensure we kept it as real as possible, we purchased the actual footage. The film covers various crucial events from world history. I had to buy these videos from different agencies. They were bought in bits and pieces through the years," Mehta said in a statement.
