The film in question will be shot next year in Uttar Pradesh. A source says, “The biopic will have a big star playing the title role. The modalities are fast being worked out. The film will be high on VFX. Many streamlining platforms have also expressed interest in the project, which has only boosted Boxwalla’s enthusiasm about it. Boxwalla, who is currently producing ‘Shershaah’ (Sidharth Malhotra, Kiara Advani) with Karan Johar, is very excited about this project but keeping it under wraps.” Not anymore!
We tried reaching Boxwala but he remained unavailable for comment.
A Suheldev biopic was being planned by Amish Tripathi based on his own book ‘Legend of Suheldev: The King Who Saved India’. Reportedly, Tripathi was all set to produce the film under his banner Immortal Studios jointly with Wakaoo Films and Casa Media. Tripathi’s film was supposed to be directed by debutant Senthil Kumar. These reports emanated sometime around June last year but after that, nothing was heard about how much headway has Tripathi made.
Suheldev is an Indian king hailing from Shravasti in Uttar Pradesh, who vanquished Mahmud of Ghazni’s army in Bahraich.
