Seems, this is the season of biopics in Bollywood. After the biopic on Narendra Modi, PM Narendra Modi, Bollywood is all set for another ambitious project on the life of Atal Bihari Vajpayee, former Prime Minister. Tentatively titled ‘The Untold Vajpayee’, this movie will reveal many unknown moments from the senior BJP politician’s life, as per media reports.
This movie is based on a book of the same title by senior journalist Ullekh NP. Owners of Amaash Films, Shiva Sharma and Zeeshan Ahmad have acquired the official rights of Ullekh’s book.
The makers are currently busy with its scripting and will finalise its director and cast, added reports. Ullekh told FanKick that the significance of his book is huge.
“Vajpayee was the first BJP (non-Congress) leader to complete a full term as PM. He was the one who stepped up economic reforms first initiated by Narasimha Rao and Manmohan Singh. I also consider him as the father of the second nuclear age which was centered on South Asia.”
Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi portrayed Modi in PM Narendra Modi directed by Omung Kumar. It was released on May 24, a day after the results of 17th Lok Sabha elections were declared.
