Earlier, it was stated that Ekta Kapoor has gotten film rights for the book I Too Had A Dream based on Dr. Verghese Kurien, the man who brought about the milk revolution in the country. The film will be directed by Shree Narayan Singh.
As per a tabloid, filmakers are in talks with Akshay Kumar to essay the titular role in the movie. Akshay has been venturing into social drama films recently which includes Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and the newest one is PadMan.
As per a trade analyst specified to the tabloid, “Akshay’s reigning the charts and every film of his is a safe bet. So, this time around, the price will be what Akshay will take in addition to the partnership that he will command when he signs the film on the milkman of India. We are sure that he will charge an utterly, butterly delicious price for the film.”
About Dr. Verghese Kurien, Ekta previously told, “Balaji has always strived to bring interesting stories on screen, and the story of Dr. Verghese Kurien is not only engaging but extremely inspiring too. I am delighted to collaborate with Shree Narayan Singh to tell the story of a true visionary.”
While Shree Narayan Singh revealed, “The film will talk about not just making profits and being a huge enterprise but also Dr Kurien’s role in empowering the general public, especially women at the grassroots level. Dr. Kurien was a visionary businessman, philanthropist and a great human. He wanted to study nuclear engineering but ended up in the dairy industry.”
