Former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee has turned 93 on December 25. On the occasion of his birthday, a biopic titled “Yugpurush Atal” was announced here.
Produced by Rajeev Dhamija, Amit Joshi and Ranjeet Sharma under the Spectrum Movies banner, the film has been written by Basant Kumar and will be directed by Mayank P Srivastava.
“We are making this biopic on Vajpayeeji’s family’s consent. We are constantly in touch with his family members. His niece Mala Tiwari has helped us in executing this project,” Srivastava told IANS.
The makers will soon start casting for the project. Singer Bappi Lahiri has also created a song for “Yugpurush Atal”.
“I wish good luck to the makers for this biopic. I have made a song for Bharat Ratna Atal Bihari Vajpayeeji. This song is made from a poem that he wrote earlier,” Bappi Lahiri said.
Vajpayee is an Indian politician who was the 10th Prime Minister of India, first for 13 days in 1996 and then from 1998 to 2004. He was the first non-Congress prime minister to complete full term of five years.
