Renowned Bollywood director Prahakar Shukla is all set to make a movie on a tragic incident of rape and murder of 15 years old British tourist Scarlett Keeling who was found dead on a beach in Goa in February.
Prabhakar Shukla told The Times that he would start shooting of the movie Rave Party from July in Goa and is in contact with Katrina Kaif for the proposed role of playing act of Scarlett. He further said he wished to reveal less known facts about the Portugese colony that is know as “hippy paradise” and have become shelter for drug peddlers and addicts. According to Shukla, ‘The whole film is about drug abuse and the exploitation of tourist” and he further said just not in India but in entire world real life cinema is attracting tourists. He has yet to meet Scarlett’s mother MacKeown and hopefully meet him on planned trip to Britain next month.
According to the comments reported to ‘The Times’ Mrs MacKeown said she is in doubt about the movie that might depict Scarlett in bad shade rather than her killers and police that was lenient in dealing with culprits. “I’d like to know how they’re going to portray it, or I won’t approve it,” she told The Times. “I’m not sure about calling it Rave Party. Scarlett was not at a party. She was raped and murdered on the beach.”
However, Scarlett’s case is recognized as one of the most brutal of a series of recent sexual assaults on foreign women tourist and most of them being female have raised concern about the safety of female tourists in Indian during last six month.
