These days many films are fascinated with real life characters or books. The infamous killer Charles Sobhraj has captivated attention of filmamkers now to make a full length movie based on his life. Noted directors have spoken with a glint in their eye about the life of this criminal, who made headlines through the 70s for his dozen murders and also went under the name of the bikini killer.

Recently, it has been heard that Arun Rangachari has acquired the rights of author Farrukh Dhondy's book titled 'The Bikini Murders' that is reportedly based on the story of Sobhraj. The book represents the life of Charles to the core.

Says a close source, "Earlier attempts at making a Sobhraj biopic have failed because of the quick reaction from his lawyers. But now the hurdle seems to have been circumvented with the acquisition of rights."

The hunt to find the perfect on-screen Charles is on.
