"India’s Most Wanted is inspired from real-life incidents of a terrorist who was known as India’s Osama. The makers of the film were aware that the same miscreant had troubled Shah Rukh Khan with threats during his initial days in Bollywood and his stay in Mumbai. Hence, Rajkumar Gupta and Arjun Kapoor approached SRK to include his storyline in India’s Most Wanted, to which the actor positively agreed. Shah Rukh has been duly credited for allowing his story to be featured in the film,” read a statement.

Arjun plays the role of an intelligence officer Prabhat who leads a four-member team to hunt the deadly terrorist. Speaking about the preparations for his role, Arjun says, "We, obviously for security reasons, could not meet the actual officers. But we met certain officers who gave us certain insights into the behavioral patterns, the way they carried out the investigation.”

India's Most Wanted, produced by Fox Star Studios, Raj Kumar and Myra Karn, is slated to release on 24 May.
