Husband and wife Kunal Kemmu and Soha Ali Khan had announced that they will be producing a biopic on a noted lawyer and politician Ram Jethmalani. The couple had even met Jethmalani few years ago before his demise. But the film could not go on floor till today.
When Soha was asked about it, she says, “Kunal and I are very lazy when it comes to production. So we have only one film which we are doing that is biopic of Ram Jethmalani. We are very lucky to have Ronnie Screwvala with us and he will be right person to know when will start the project. But beyond that we have not thought about anything else about it. We have locked the first half of the script and working on the second half of it. It is an ambitious project and it will take time to start.”
We have lost more than a brilliant lawyer and a rebel. We have lost the conscience keeper of India. Ram Jethmalani s unusual moral courage and curious legal mind has been a rare gift. Personally, he was very gracious to me - I will miss him greatly and in this I am far from alone pic.twitter.com/QBsHKJ9LbO— Soha Ali Khan (@sakpataudi) September 8, 2019
The biopic will not feature Soha but Kunal is supposed to be playing Jethmalani's role in the film. The rest of the cast and crew are yet to be finalised and it is said that the team is trying to cover his life starting from young age to his recent days. As per the buzz Jethmalani had represented many high profile cases in his long career and that will also be included in the story.
