In 2012 the director approached many producers while being rejected as POCKET GANGSTERS is an uncut film. Mr. Vikram M. Shah who believed in something unique and out of the box took the initiative to flag off the project in the end quarter of 2012. Initially it was believed that the project would be executed as per detailed paper work and production design but as per the screenplay the director Hemant Nilim Das was always in double mind that who would be the lead in the film? It took 3 months to boil down to Madhur Mittal as he was an International actor from Slum Dog Millionaire and knew what exactly what an uncut would contribute to his International Career. He agreed to become part of the project and then everything became very easy going.
