Film rights to ‘Who Killed Moosewala’ book acquired by Matchbox Shots
Matchbox Shots, mentored by Sriram Raghavan, has obtained the rights to the gripping book titled “Who Killed Moosewala: The Spiralling Story of Violence in Punjab.” The book, written by crime journalist and Deputy Editor of The Tribune, Chandigarh, Jupinderjit Singh, uncovers the dark side of the Punjabi music industry and provides a chilling account of crime, fame, and tragedy in the life of Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, also known as Sidhu Moosewala.
The book explores the ominous impact of drugs and the rise of violence fueled by the dominance of gangsters in Punjab. It goes beyond being just a mystery and offers a comprehensive understanding of the hidden world behind an industry that is often glamorized but not fully understood.
Sidhu Moosewala, a renowned figure in the international Punjabi music scene, started as Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu and became an artist whose lyrics and themes deeply resonated with the global youth. Though his work was controversial, addressing raw and unfiltered issues, it made him a voice for many. Unfortunately, his fame was tragically cut short, and “Who Killed Moosewala” aims to uncover the truth behind this shocking event.
Jupinderjit Singh expressed his excitement about Matchbox Shots acquiring the rights to develop the book further. Sarita Patil from Matchbox Shots emphasized the intriguing connection between the music industry and gang wars in Punjab. She believes that Jupinderjit’s book provides a strong foundation for their project.
Led by Dikssha Jyote Routray, Matchbox Shots aims to create more than just a movie or series. They want to present a story that reflects the complexity of human existence and the forces that shape our world. Routray describes it as an intricate interplay of crime, fame, and music in Punjab, demanding contemplation and understanding.
