Anil Sunkara's international film. 'Dr.Abdul Kalam', is much more than a biopicDec 13, 2016 07:27 AM IST
Producer Anil Sunkara is set to start an exciting project. It will be an international film based on the life the "Missile Man Of India", the most loved president of India, Dr.APJ Abdul Kalam. Tentatively titled 'Dr.Abdul Kalam', this film will be shot in English and will be released internationally. It will be produced under Dream Merchants banner and Abhishek Aggarwal co-produces it. The pre-production work is underway and the principal shooting commences in March.
To those who think the film will be just a biopic based on the writings of Abdul Kalam like 'The Wings Of Fire', it is much more than that. Anil Sunkara says that half of the film will be about Kalam's early life based on his and others' writings. The other half will be all about how US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) failed to detect India's nuclear strategy, all because of the efforts of one man,Kalam.
Starting from rags, Dr.Abdul Kalam became an iconic personality, who inspired millions. Though he passed away in 2015, he continues to live in the memories of many Indians. Even children like him very much and his writings are very popular.
We know the man's journey from a poor family to the head of India's successful nuclear program to the president of India. But this project which also focuses on how Kalam managed to keep India's nuclear strategy under wraps though one of the most powerful Intelligence agencies in the world, CIA, was trying to detect it, would be much more intriguing. The cast and crew details of the film will be announced soon.
