He said the director would have to clarify what he wants to portray in the movie.

Gaddam had earlier said that he would recreate the horrific story in his forthcoming Telugu drama Nisha. The idea, he says, is to send out a strong message to the government and public.

"I'm not trying to cash in on the sensitivity of this issue but bring to light a barbaric act that shook our nation. I want to send a strong message through my film that such acts can't be taken lightly and the perpetrators should be punished severely," Gaddam had said.

The film, though not based solely on the Delhi incident in which a 23-year-old was brutally gang-raped and who died, has other commercial elements to make it an interesting watch.
