Sriram Raghavan mentored Matchbox Shots, the production house renowned for cinematic gems like “Andhadhun,” “Monica O My Darling,” and “Scoop,” has acquired the rights to the gripping book, ‘Who Killed Moosewala? The spiralling Story of violence in Punjab’ authored by crime journalist, Jupinderjit Singh. This literary revelation peels back the layers of the enigmatic Punjabi music industry, offering a spine-chilling account of crime, fame, and tragedy in the life of Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, famously known as Sidhu Moosewala.
The book delves into the ominous influence of drugs and the eruption of violence driven by gangsters’ growing dominance in Punjab.
The narrative is more than just a mystery; it paints a comprehensive picture of the dark underbelly of an industry often glamorized but rarely understood.
Sidhu Moosewala, an iconic figure in the international Punjabi music scene, transformed from Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu into an artist whose lyrics and themes resonated deeply with the global youth. His work was not without controversy; it delved into raw, unfiltered issues, making him a voice for many.
However, his rise to fame was tragically cut short, and ‘Who Killed Moosewala?’ attempts to uncover the truth behind this shocking event.
Jupinderjit Singh expressed his excitement and stated, “The moment the book was published, there was a lot of interest from various production houses. I was really impressed with the kind of work Matchbox Shots is producing, and I am thrilled that they have taken the rights to the book to develop it further.”
Sarita Patil of Matchbox Shots shared her perspective on the project, emphasizing the connection between the music industry and gang wars in Punjab. She stated, “We have always found the macabre relationship between the music industry and gang wars in Punjab extremely intriguing.
