A biopic of Ratan Tata
National award-winning director Sudha Kongara is all set to direct a biopic on popular industrialist and former chairman of Tata Sons Ratan Tata, say reports. The pre-production of the film is currently at an important stage and Sudha is planning to take the project onto the sets at the end of 2023.
“Tata is one of the renowned industrialists of our country and it’s a matter of pride to display his story on the silver screen. The film will bring many facets of the life of Tata and also showcases many incidents that are not available in the public domain. His life is an inspiration for every Indian around the world. The script work is also in the works and the makers are planning to start the principal photography in the last quarter of next year,” says a source.
Sources also say that Suriya Or Abhishek Bachan might be playing the role of Tata in the movie. “One among Suriya and Abhishek Bachchan is expected to step into the shoes of Ratan Tata,” the source adds. However, the spokesperson of Ratan Tata has denied any such developments.
Suriya and Sudha have collaborated previously and the actor trusts the director a lot. Their association brought much-needed praise for Suriya and also brought him a national award for his marvelous performance in Soorarai Pottru.
Sudha, who made her directorial debut with the Telugu film Andhra Andagadu, last directed Soorarai Pottru. Starring Suriya and Aparna Balamurali, the film, which was based on the life of Air Deccan founder and retired Captain of the Indian Army GR Gopinath, has won five awards including Best Feature Film, and Best Screenplay at the 68th National Film Awards.
