Sameer not based on Best Bakery case

The director says that the film is a fiction and has nothing to do with the  2002 Best Bakery case

Sameer, a political thriller, is a fiction film and has nothing to do with the 2002 Best Bakery case, says its director Dakxin Chhara.

The film's trailer shows some scenes in a bakery, which led to speculation that it will touch upon the Best Bakery case. Fourteen people were burnt alive in the ovens of the Best Bakery, on the outskirts of the Gujarat town of Vadodara on March 1, 2002.

"Sameer is not based on the 2008 serial bomb blasts (Ahmedabad), but it's inspired by some incidents. It's completely a fiction film. Few scenes have been shot in a bakery as it gives a lot of character on screen. The film is nowhere near the bakery case," Chhara said in a statement.

The film, starring Zeeshan Ayyub, Anjali Patil, Subrat Dutta, Seema Biswas and Chinmay Mandlekar, is produced by Nomad Movies Pvt Ltd. It is slated to release on September 8.
