Another Controversial Biopic by Rajkumar Hirani on the Cards after Sanju
The first biopic of his illustrious directorial career, Sanju, is yet to hit the silver screen at the end of the month, but acclaimed filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani already has plans for a new controversial biopic in mind. The PK (2014) helmer is expected to begun work on the new project right after the release of Sanju, which enters theatres on 29th June.
Spilling some more beans on the project, a source told a leading daily, “Rajkumar Hirani is planning to work on a biopic post the release of Sanju. The thought has been behind his mind since the time he shot Sanju in South Africa.”
According to the source, the biopic will be inspired by the life of a controversial Indian-African man named Harry, who acts as an intermediary between the government and the mafia. “The director met a guy named Harry aka Harminder who ran from his house in Punjab to earn money and ended up settling down in Africa. He is one of the richest persons currently. For about 10 years, Harry was the interlink between the government and the mafia. The two met there and discussed the idea but there has been no official confirmation on the same,” he added.
Hirani is a filmmaker who is capable of doing complete justice to any story that he picks up to direct. His previous work is a testament to his great vision and spectacular storytelling. We are sure that if he really makes a biopic about Harry aka Harminder, another cinematic masterpiece would not be too far from us.
Meanwhile, Hirani is currently busy promoting his next, Sanju, starring Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt. Apart from directing, he has also co-produced the much-awaited movie with his long-time collaborator, Vidhu Vinod Chopra. The film is being presented by Fox Star Studios.
