MUMBAI: After the biopic on former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh which released by the name of The Accidental Prime Minister that was followed by Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Thackeray, a film, titled “My Name is RaGa”, is being made that will focus on Congress President Rahul Gandhi‘s life.
Director Rupesh Paul, whose filmography includes projects like Saint Dracula 3D and Kamasutra 3D, said the movie has no intentions of glorifying of demystifying Rahul Gandhi.
“The movie has no intentions to glorify Rahul or to demystify him. It’s the story of a coming back of a human being who had been ridiculously attacked. “Anyone who has fearlessly confronted defeat and failure can relate to this story. In that sense, I don’t want to call this a biopic, it’s a story of any man who becomes unstoppable after he win over a catastrophic life,” he added.
Paul, who is returning to direction after four years, said, “We are planning to shoot at more interesting locations like Collin College in the US where he had to study with a fake name and also the school where he completing his schooling and also a brief portions in Italy where his grandparents lived.”
He further said, “We have a very small schedule left for shooting until the movie releases. The small schedule will be covering the latest events. For instance, Priyanka’s entry in active politics we have added during the last day of our last shooting schedule. So basically we will wait for 10 per cent of the shooting schedule since it’s a political movie and political events keep happening unexpectedly.”
The film is expected to hit the screens in April before the general elections of 2019.
