Biopic to be made on Anna Hazare

How Kisan Baburao Hazare rose to become the nationwide hero Anna Hazare must be an interesting journey & a fabulous presentation on the 70 mm screen for audiences to have a closer look at the living legend & will now be possible by The Rise Pictures to make a biopic on Anna Hazare, skillfully written by Shashank Udapurkar.
The world recognizes Anna Hazare for his fight for Jan Lokpal and idolizes him for his visionary work for betterment of the country; it is his lifespan that counts that transformed him from Kisan Baburao Hazare to a legendary figure that shook the country fetching him the respect that he deserves, the biopic will be produced by Anirudda S Gaikar & Shashank Udapurkar who also has written the script & will be directing the movie.

After receiving a formal consent from the living legend himself Shashank Udapurkar considers it a blessing. He underwent a thorough research for over two & half years, he mentions, “It took me really long to complete the script on Annaji. I had drafted 7 scripts before finalizing the finalbounded script as it is a mammoth task to present Annaji’s 75 years of life span in a two & half hour film. 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 & love for country & mankind.”
The writer states that it is wholly & solely an inspirational movie not venturing into any aspect about any person or any political group related to Annaji’s life. Director Shashank Udapurkar has earlier directed a biopic film on the life of Sambhaji Raje Son of Shivaji Maharaj which is on the verge of release
