BASED ON A TRUE TRAGEDY
For four days in November 2008 a terrorist group carried out a series of brutal attacks throughout the city of Mumbai, India. While the attackers were ultimately stopped and brought to justice, hundreds were killed and even more were wounded in the course of the attacks. The events of those four days remain permanently fixed in the memory of the Indian and global community.
One of the most high-profile landmarks to be targeted and attacked was the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, and the events of the hotel attack are the subject of the new historical thriller Hotel Mumbai. The film chronicles the bravery and resilience of the hotel staff and patrons who fought back against the attackers and struggled to survive until help arrived.
We sat down with the director and stars of Hotel Mumbai to find out what it took to capture the terror and hope of the real world events and translate it to film.
