Biopic of Rajiv Gandhi, Shammi Kapoor in offing

MUMBAI: Of late filmmakers tread on three paths: remakes, sequels and biopics that they think will get them enough returns besides entertaining people at large.

Amid talks of filmmaker Manish Gupta making a biopic of Anna Hazare, comes the news that Bhavna Talwar has firmed up her mind to make a film based on the life of India?s former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi.

The film is said to delve into the life of Gandhi encompassing every aspect - from his personal life to that of him as a political leader.

Currently, in the process of scripting the film, Talwar has over the last year researched extensively on the subject.

The film is being produced by Sheetal Talwar under his WSG banner.

Meanwhile, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is all set to make a documentary on the life and times of Shammi Kapoor, who passed away in August last year due to chronic renal failure.

?From the pessimism of Guru Dutt?s ?Jinhe naaz hai Hind par woh kahan hain? from Pyaasa, Shammi took us kicking, screaming, singing and dancing with ?Hum pyar ke toofanon se ghire hain hum kya kare?in Junglee,? Mehra added while speaking on his inspiration to make the documentary titled Bollywood The Greatest Love Story Ever Told.

Work on the documentary is slated to begin after completion of Mehra?s Bhaag Milkha Bhaag in July.
