MUMBAI: Shahid Kapoor and Shree Narayan Singh’s Batti Gul Meter Chalu is nearing its release and fans are already super excited about the project. Other than this film, Singh has also planned to make a biopic on Dr Verghese Kurien, who’s known to be the Father of the White Revolution in India.
The script is being developed out of the visionary’s autobiography – I Too Had A Dream. Reportedly, Ekta Kapor’s Balaji Motion Pictures has acquired the film rights for the book, which chronicles the life of Dr. Kurien, who dedicated his life to shaping the milk industry of India. He was also known as the ‘Man behind Amul’.
It was during the film of Batti Gul when the filmmaker narrated the script to Shahid and he instantly agreed to be part of the project.
The filmmaker told Indian media, “The next film with Shahid is not based on any social issue. It is in the hard-hitting space. No one has seen Shahid in that space before. Work on the script is on.”
He further added that he wanted to make the film entertaining and appealing for the audience.
