Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar said that his next movie would be the biopic on Udham Singh, who was an Indian revolutionary. While interacting with media, Shoojit told that he wanted to make the film on Udham Singh right after he shifted to Mumbai.
Shoojit said, “When I shifted to Mumbai, this was the first film that I wanted to make but something else would always come up.”
When asked about how the idea of making a biopic on Udmam Singh came to his mind, he said that he was on a visit to Jallianwala Bagh in the ’90s which triggered the thought of making biopic on Udham Singh.
Talking about Udam, Shoojit said, “He was one of the prominent faces of the freedom movement but youngsters don’t know much about this martyr. He is a forgotten hero. Through my film, I want the youngsters to know him.”
The filmmaker told that he has started working for the film. Shoojit didn’t say anything about the movie’s cast. Apart from this film, which is his new project for this year, Shoojit will be collaborating with Juhi Chaturvedi for a love story. The two have worked together for ‘Vicky Donor’ and ‘Piku’.
