Filmmakers Vinod Bhanushali and Sandeep Singh have come together to bring on-screen the life of late Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. The biopic is titled 'Main Rahoon Ya Na Rahoon, Yeh Desh Rehna Chahiye - ATAL'. The movie is an adaptation of the book 'The Untold Vajpayee: Politician and Paradox' by renowned author Ullekh N.P.
Speaking about the movie, Vinod revealed, "I have been a great fan of Atalji all my life. A born leader, a statesman par excellence, a visionary. Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji was all the above. His contribution to our nation-building is unparalleled, and it is our great honour that Bhanushali Studios Ltd is bringing his legacy to the silver screen."
Furthermore, Sandeep Singh revealed, "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 the opposition as well as India's most progressive Prime Minister."
The makers, who are searching for the actor to depict the role of Atalji, will soon announce the actor and director of the movie. Scheduled to go on floors in early 2023, the movie will be released on Christmas 2023, which marks the 99th birth anniversary of Bharat Ratna Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
