Mumibai, Sept 16 (IBNS): Hollywood meets Bollywood to look back at one of the biggest chemical disasters in world history which happened in the heart of India.
'Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain', produced by Sahara Movie Studios and Rising Star Entertainment and starring Martin Sheen, Kal Penn, Rajpal Yadav and Tannishtha Chatterjee aims to turn the Bhopal Gas Tragedy of 1984 into an edge-of-the-seat social thriller.
 
It will be thirty years this December but no film has ever been made on the massive toxic gas leak from Union Carbide Corporation's chemical plant in Bhopal that devastating night. 
 
As many as 3,800 people died instantly and more than half a million people were exposed to the gas. In the subsequent decades 15,000 to 20,000 premature deaths have happened due to the aftereffects of the gas leak.
 
In the format which will not only be informative but highly entertaining for audiences all over the world, 'Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain' digs deep into what went into the infamous gas leak. 
 
The film revolves around a poor man named Dilip, played by Rajpal Yadav, who lands himself a job at the Union Carbide plant in Bhopal and through him the audience will get to see what led to the devastating tragedy. 
 
Seemanto Roy, Executive Director of Sahara Movie Studios said: "The Bhopal gas tragedy is a part of our history that every Indian should be aware of. Through this movie we want to carry the message that this tragedy was an avoidable one. It is a story of real people and real sufferings. We are sure that 'Bhopal' will connect a cord with everyone and will force them to think and at the same time empathise with the victims and sufferers. This is our tribute to them."
