Bollywood director Sandeep Singh, who directed the biopic of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is back with another biopic, this time on former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
An adaptation of the book 'The Untold Vajpayee: Politician and Paradox', by Ullekh N.P. the movie will be titled Main Rahoon Ya Na Rahoon, Yeh Desh Rehna Chahiye – Atal.
“Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ji was one of the greatest leaders of Indian history who won hearts of enemies with his words, who lead the nation affirmatively and created the blue print of progressive India. Being a filmmaker, I feel that cinema is the best medium to communicate such untold stories, that will unveil not only his political ideologies, but his humane and poetic aspects, that made him the most loved “leader of opposition” as well as India’s most progressive Prime Minister,” wrote Sandeep Singh on Instagram.
“Main Rahoon Ya Na Rahoon, Yeh Desh Rehna Chahiye – Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee.’ Presenting #ATAL, a film on the life story of India’s most exemplary leader, renowned poet, and a visionary".
The movie, which will go on floors in 2023 and is expected to be released on December 25, 2023, coinciding with the 99th birthday of the late prime minister, will be produced by Vinod Bhanushali, Sandeep Singh, Sam Khan, Kamlesh Bhanushali and Vishal Gurnani.
The makers are yet to zero in on an actor to play the lead role in the movie.
