continuing with the life/art cycle of imitation

Mumbai Police sub-inspector Dayanand Nayak has shot dead 83 criminals in encounters, and arrested over 300, with some of India's most wanted as his prized catch. He has invested his reward money in a school in Karnataka. He has assisted RGV on Company. He is the foundation for the character of Bhaskar Sarnaik (played by débutante Amitabh Dayal) in N. Chandra's Kagaar: Living on the edge. He also has more filmic avataars in RGV's Ab Tak Chhappan and Madhur Bhandarkar's Aan (I could go aan and aan ... yes, bad one that!) {more} {and more}

More about Kagaar: It also stars Om Puri, Nandita Das, Anoop Soni, Jyotsna Karyekar and another new find Aditya Khatdhare. The background score is by Surender Sodhi, lyrics by Gulzar and music by Shantanu Moitra.
