Akshay Kumar likely to do RSS biopic with Baahubali writer Vijayendra Prasad
Akshay Kumar is the current poster boy of patriotism and contemporary social issues. Lately, there has been a conspicuous shift in the way he has chosen his movies. While his recent choice Airlift and Rustom speak volumes of his patriotic inclination, his other films like Toilet Ek Prem Katha and Padman preach about relevant social issues. Akshay, who is alleged to be a BJP sympathiser, is now in talks for a biopic on Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
KV Vijayendra Prasad, the man behind the Baahubali series, has been doing research works for the biopic for the past few months. He along with his team are collecting information about the RSS and life of its chiefs including Dr KB Hedgewar and Madhav Sadashiv Golwalkar among others. The movie will be produced jointly by Karnataka BJP leader and Lahari Recording Company owner, Lahari Velu and his brother Manohar Naidu.
The makers are planning to shoot the movie in Hindi and later dubbed into Telugu, Kannada, Marathi and other regional languages. Vijayendra Prasad will soon be meeting RSS incumbent chief Mohan Bhagwat and other top leaders to gather details for the film. Reportedly, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah have extended their full support to the movie.
As per reports, Akshay Kumar has already given his nod and if things turn out well, the movie will start rolling by the end of this year. Many other leading actors and technicians are expected to be signed for the film. Official announcement will be made very soon.
