Fans of superstar Akshay Kumar are set for a cinematic treat because for Special Chabbis, the actor will portray a villainous and cunning thief, who leads a pack of “26” hardened criminals in a daring jewellery heist, which sent shockwaves across India. Based on a true story, Akshay’s character ‘Mon Singh’ is said to be based upon real-life, notorious conman Natwarlal, who sold the Taj Mahal in a series of daring scams, before he was stopped.
Special 26 is a cleverly scripted and observed gritty drama film, which is based on the real-life events of the infamous Mumbai daylight raid of 19th March 1987 in which an unknown conman posed as Cbi officer ‘Mon Singh’ to recruit a band of 26 impostor income tax officials to carry out an audacious robbery on the Opera House branch of Tribhovandas Bhimji Zaveri in Mumbai, disappearing with precious jewellery worth Lakhs.
