Shahid Kapoor to team up with Shree Narayan Singh for a hard hitting film
"The next film with Shahid is not based on any social issue. It is a completely different kind of a film. It is in the hard-hitting space. No one has seen Shahid in that space before. Work on the script is on," Singh told PTI.
The director has joined hands with Ekta Kapoor for the biopic on Kurien. The script is being developed out of Kurien's autobiography "I Too Had A Dream".
"At the moment, scripting is on. It is a period film, we are starting the film from 1947. I want to do proper research before going on floors. I want to be fully prepared for this film right from the script to the location to the VFX, I want to have a proper storyboard for it," he said.
"His life has been very interesting. Our idea is to make it entertaining and appealing for the film. Even though the material is in hand but the big challenge lies in taking it to the big screen in a way that audience will love the journey and feel inspired as well."
