On the development, Ajit Andhare, COO – Viacom18 Motion Pictures commented, “Special 26 is an intelligent entertainer. The film is based on true events which makes it universally appealing across languages. We’re confident that our film will excite audiences in the South the same way that the original material did.”
Special 26 is based on a real life group of con artists who pulled off many clever robberies during the 1980's, and robbed famous businessmen and politicians by pretending to be the CBI or Income tax officers. Under the pretext of conducting raids, the con artists would take away all the black money hoarded by them.
