As biopics are the current trend that has swept many filmmakers in its wave, engaging the audience with a real story strikes plausible comprehension of the lives of personalities. As per the reports, director Pa Ranjith is all geared up to debut in Bollywood with his next which is touted to be a biopic on freedom fighter Birsa Munda.


Beyond The Clouds producer Shareen Mantri Kedia and Kishor Arora are teaming up with the director Pa Ranjith to craft the biopic on the life of the freedom fighter who played an important role in the independence movement of India.


About the same the Kaala director said to a leading news agency, "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."


"When Namah Picture's Shareen, Kishor and I met to discuss Birsa early this year, we realised 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. I am happy to be working with Namah and excited by the commitment that they have expressed towards telling Birsa's story. Birsa's life transcends time and I am sure it will inspire the audience, as it has all of us," he informed.


The makers of the film announced the project on the birth anniversary of the tribal leader Birsa Munda yesterday.


Producer Kedia said, "The life and times of Birsa Munda are an inspiration and it's a remarkable story that needs to be told. There are very few parallels in history of so much being achieved at such a young age. We at Namah Pictures feel privileged to bring this story to screen and are excited to collaborate with Pa.Ranjith to direct the film."
