According to a report in a leading daily, the filmmaker will mark the occasions of PM Modi's 69th birthday with the announcement of the new project titled Mann Bairagi, described as an hour-long special feature which means that it would be more on the lines of a short film.
Saaho star Prabhas also shared the poster, writing, “A special film on a special person by a special filmmaker on this special day, Happy Birthday @narendramodi Sir. So happy to present the first look of Sanjay Leela Bhansali & Mahaveer Jain's 'Mann Bairagi', an untold story of our PM, directed by Ssanjay Tripaathy.”
This is not the first time a film has been made on the larger-than-life figure of PM Modi. Earlier this year actor Vivek Anand Oberoi was seen playing the Indian Prime Minister in the film PM Narendra Modi. A web-series too was made on the BJP leader’s life titled Modi: Journey of a Common Man.
The upcoming film is written and directed by Ssanjay Tripaathy and is described as the “untold story from the life of the Prime Minister which has not been in the public domain so far.” It is co-produced by Mahaveer Jain.
"“Mann Bairagi brings out that defining moment in the journey of our PM which has not been in public knowledge so far. I am sure it will connect and inspire our today’s youth deeply, and that’s what excited us to work on this film.”" - Mahaveer Jain
Speaking about the appeal of the film, Ssanjay said, “For me, it’s a human interest story about the self-discovery of a person who went on to become such a strong leader of our country.”
No release date for the film has been set so far.
