Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma says he has stuck to authentic facts for The Attacks of 26/11, his movie based on the 2008 Mumbai terror attack.

A 15-minute sequence from the movie was showcased on Friday.

"As much as possible, I would say that it is a complete, true representation of what happened and the reason for that is most of the sources are either eyewitness accounts or Kasab's [terrorist Ajmal Amir Kasab] confession to police charge sheets to the judgment copy...," Varma said on Friday at the screening.

"So most of it is authentic information. I did not try to suggest anything which is not in the popular knowledge," he added.

Meanwhile, asked about the opposition he faced during the making of the film, Varma said: "Actually the reverse is true. I think a lot of people went out of their way to co−operate in this film's shooting, including authorities."

"If [there are] some people who have a problem, it is more of a misunderstanding and misconception. They don't know about my correct intention behind this film. But most people have incredibly co−operated in the making of this film," he added.

In the movie, Varma has shown the exact sequence of events of 26/11, the night when 10 terrorists created havoc in Mumbai, killing 166 people.
