Pa Ranjith wants to make Birsa Munda biopic
Director Pa Ranjith is excited to trace the life of freedom fighter Birsa Munda on the big screen and says the film will appeal to Indian as well as international audiences.
After the release of Beyond the Clouds, producer duo Shareen Mantri Kedia and Kishor Arora are collaborating with Ranjith for the biopic on the life of the tribal leader, who was an important figure in the history of the Indian independence movement.
When I first read about Birsa seven years back, in Mahasweta Devi’s ‘Aranyer Adhikar’ (‘Jangal Ke Davedar’ in Hindi), I knew that one day I will narrate this story,” Ranjith said in a statement.
“When Namah Picture’s Shareen, Kishor and I met to discuss Birsa early this year, we realized that we shared the same passion to narrate this inspiring story that will make a brilliant feature film, which will appeal to the Indian audience as well as the international audience.
