Pankaj Tripathi to headline the biopic of this great politician 

Pankaj Tripathi is one of the most sought after actors of the industry at the moment. He has given some really nuanced and entertaining performances in last few years and now he is all set to portray former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in a biopic. Atal ji was one of the co-founders of Bhartiya Janta Party and one of the most influential Prime Ministers of India and Pankaj is excited to portray him on screen.

In a recent statement, the actor said, "It's my honour to portray such a humane politician on screen. He was not just a politician but so much more, he was an excellent writer and a renowned poet. Getting to be in his shoes is nothing but a privilege for an actor like me."

Ravi Jadhav, who is a national award winning Marathi director, is going to helm the project and he says, "For me as a director, I couldn't have asked for any better story than that of Atalji. On top of this, having an exemplary actor like Pankaj Tripathi to bring to screen Atalji's story and the support of the producers. I hope that I can live up to people's expectations with ATAL."

Talking about casting of the lead role, producer Vinod Bhanushli said, "Unanimously, we all had imagined Pankaj Tripathi playing Atalji since we began discussing the film. We are delighted to have one of India's finest actors playing the part."

'Atal' is supposed to release by Christmas 2023.
