After Shootout At Lokhandwala, Ekta Kapoor seems to have
taken interest in making films based on real life stories. Her next
film will be based on the life of the milk producer of India
'milkman' Verghese Kurien.
Before Ekta Kapoor, veteran filmmaker Shyam Benegal made a film
on Verghese called Manthan. Ekta's film will be based on his
memoirs 'I Too Had a Dream' by Gauri Salvi. Kurien introduced the
co-operative dairy farming in Gujarat and the rest of India and is
known as the Father of the White Revolution of India.
Ekta however, wants to make a commercial bio-pic. Actor Girish
Karnad played the role of Kurien in Shyam Benegal's Manthan
however; Ekta plans to sign a big star to play the role of Kurien.
The film will be directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia.
