Filmmaker Hansal Mehta is set to develop and direct a web series based on gangster Vikas Dubey, who was killed in an encounter by Uttar Pradesh police last month. Eight policemen, including DSP Devendra Mishra, were ambushed in Bikru village in Chaubeypur area of Kanpur when they were going to arrest Dubey and fell to bullets fired from rooftops shortly after midnight on July 3.

Dubey, who was carrying a reward of Rs five lakh on information leading to his arrest, was arrested from Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh on July 9. He was killed in an encounter on the morning of July 10 when a police vehicle carrying him from Ujjain to Kanpur met with an accident and he tried to escape from the spot in Bhauti area, the police had said.

Producer Shailesh R Singh’s Karma Media and Entertainment, in association with Polaroid Media, have bought the rights for the upcoming project on the gangster. Mehta, known for directing acclaimed films like Aligarh, Omerta and the National Award-winning Rajkummar Rao-starrer Shahid, said he will approach the subject responsibly.
