Birsa Munda Biopic will mark the Bollywood debut of director Pa Ranjith. The movie depicts the story of revolutionary leader Birsa Munda who fights against the British. It is also said that Ishaan Khatter may team up with director Pa Ranjith for his Bollywood debut, a biopic on freedom fighter Birsa Munda.
Producer Shareen Mantri reveals that the historical epic is in the latter stages of scripting and will go on floors by the end of the year. “We are getting the script ready and will be locking it soon. A lot of research has been done. We are thinking about the locations. Parts of it will definitely be shot in Ranchi, since that’s where the character is from. Most of the film will be set in the forests,” says Shareen.
Born in Ulihatu in 1875, Birsa Munda led a series of guerilla uprisings against the British rule who were trying to usurp land from the Munda community. He was arrested from the Jamkopai forest at the age of 25 and died in custody in Ranchi Jail. Stories of his bravery are immortalized in the tribal folklore of the Bihar-Jharkhand borders.
