A 22-year-old "former gangster" has signed a contract to play a role in a soap opera about his life. 

Nakkarin "Ne Wat Dao" Poomranard, who was a member of the infamous Oros gang that was allegedly involved in drugs and violence, was approached by Tawan Jarujinda, an actor-turned-producer at Mongkol Lakorn, a series production and distribution company under Sahamongkol Film International Co Ltd.
