Harman Baweja, under his home banner Baweja Studios, has acquired the life rights of Dr. Rukmani Krishnamurthy for a biopic.

Dr Rukmani is India’s first female forensic scientist, who played a pivotal role during the 1993 Bombay Blasts as the head of the Explosives Department at the Forensic Science Laboratory. She stood tall among all men in finding the culprits behind the ghastly act.

Harman says, “My mission is to tell unheard stories that inspire the younger generation. The story of Dr. Rukmani Krishnamurthy is one such. The audience across the nation deserves to know her journey, her contribution to Forensic Science, and her role during the 1993 Bombay Blasts. I am really proud and excited to work on the project.”

Dr. Rukmani herself adds, “Almost 30 years have passed since the ‘93 blasts and yet the memories of the investigation are still as fresh as yesterday. Seeing how far the field of forensic investigation has come today, it’s still mind-boggling to think about how we managed to scientifically connect curial evidences to give a lead to the investigation.”

She goes on, “After meeting Harman and seeing his vision for my story, I can tell that it will be told the right way and honor those who worked sleepless nights to bring justice.”

Meanwhile, Baweja Studios has a packed calendar with Captain India with Hansal Mehta and Kartik Aaryan, The Great Indian Kitchen remake with Sanya Malhotra, and an untitled film with Jackie Shroff and Sikandar Kher. The release date of their ambitious Punjabi film, Honeymoon, starring Gippy Grewal and Jasmin Bhasin, has also been announced as October 25.
