Author Sandeep Unnithan’s famous book, Black Tornado: The Three Sieges of Mumbai 26/11 will soon be turned into an upcoming web series. American screenwriter, Joshua Caldwell released her interest and intent towards coming on board to work on this adaptation.

Contiloe Pictures, a broad-based entertainment content production company, has already received the rights for the adaptation of this book, Black Tornado: The Three Sieges of Mumbai 26/11 into a digital web series. Sources mentioned that this multi-episode digital drama will be exploring the various facets of the Mumbai attacks held on 26/11 spreading the air of complete terror in the city.

Sandeep’s book’s title, Black Tornado: The Three Sieges of Mumbai 26/11 is inspired by the code name assigned by the National Security Guard during the operation conducted in this regard.
