Pankaj Tripathi won hearts when he revealed his first look as former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee for the biopic, Main Atal Hoon. Recently, the actor had shared another update on his social media about the shoot commencement of the film.

The makers have now officially announced the filming of this movie about the life and political career of India’s beloved leader. Atal Bihari Vajpayee was not only a politician but also a poet, a gentleman and a statesman. Commencing the shoot in Mumbai, the team will have a long schedule of more than 45 days covering different parts of the country.

Produced by Vinod Bhanushali and Sandeep Singh, the biopic is directed by the National award-winning Ravi Jadhav, a big name in Marathi cinema, who like Laxman Utekar, Om Raut and Nagraj Manjule, is now making his Hindi debut.

‘‘Getting a chance to play the role of our great leader, Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee-ji, is an honor in itself. I went through rigorous reading sessions to understand the dialect, his lifestyle and his vision for India. I feel elated today as we begin shooting,” said Pankaj.

Director Ravi Jadhav adds, “I have seen Pankaj-ji being super involved in the process of knowing and understanding Atal-ji. I am sure no one else would have been a better fit than him to essay such a proficient personality. I am hoping to create the same magic with our film that Atal-ji created with his life and his vision for our country.”

Producer Vinod stated, “This is a special film. Everyone associated is leaving no stone unturned for it to be one of the best experiences for our audiences. We went through a lot of research right from the story, locations to looks for each of our characters before coming on floors for the shoot.”

Producer Sandeep also said, “This is just the beginning of an incredible experience. With infinite meetings with the teams, the hard work of the entire crew and our incredible cast, I am happy to commence the shoot of our film.”

The film is written by Rishi Virmani and Ravi Jadhav with music by Salim-Sulaiman and lyrics by Manoj Muntashir. Presented by Bhanushali Studios Limited and Legend Studios, it is produced by Vinod Bhanushali, Sandeep Singh, Sam Khan and Kamlesh Bhanushali and co-produced by Bhavesh Bhanushali, Ishaan Dutta, Zeeshan Ahmad and Shivv Sharma.
