Shoojit Sircar’s production house Rising Sun Films has created a new benchmark on social thrillers with PINK. And now Shoojit has begun work on his next directorial venture- a film that focuses on a real life forgotten hero Udham Singh. The film will be based around the Indian Independence struggle and the unsung martyr Udham. Sircar has been working on the pre-production of the film, as this has been a passion project for him for years!
While speaking about why this project is particularly special to him, he said, "During my theatre days in Delhi, back in 1995 when I was still studying, I would go with a group to Punjab which was just coming out of a period of turmoil, and sing songs of communal harmony. I visited Amritsar and the Jallianwala Bagh then and was greatly inspired by the story of this fiery revolutionary who shot dead Sir Michael O'Dwyer, the former Lieutenant Governor of Punjab in British India, in London to avenge the massacre of 1919.”
Sounds interesting, doesn’t it?
