The ace director in an informal chit chat revealed that the violence factor in today’s movies has gone up leaps and bounds They want dons, mafia backgrounds, guns and grenades, he was quoted saying. He made this remark while referring to Mahesh’s character in Businessman.

In that Ramu reportedly said that Mumbai was feeling the absence of Dons right now, as Dawood & Co had vanished, and anybody could come and reign in the city. That anybody, Puri revealed was someone special like Mahesh’s character in Businessman.
