If sources are to be believed then one can soon look forward to a movie based on Kisan Baburao Hazare aka Anna Hazare.
To be bannered under The Rise Pictures, the biopic will be written and directed by Shashank Udapurkar, who will also co-produce along with Anirudda S Gaikar. It is said that Udapurkar took nearly two and half years to compile the legend's illustrious life into a movie. Talking to sources he explained that it has been "A mammoth task to present Annaji's 75 years of life span in a two & half hour film."
With this project the filmmaker wants to show Hazare's virtues to everyone across the globe. "I want the film to not only inspire Indians but people from all over the world to know how a man hailing for a small village became a national hero with ethics, simplicity and love for country and mankind," stated Udapurkar who is waiting to release one more biopic on Sambhaji Raje, the son of Shivaji Maharaj.
