Venturing into new projects, actor Ayushmann Khurrana will next be seem in a story based on the life of Shivkar Bapuji Talpade, one of India’s greatest scientists. However the actor has expressed that though the film includes real life events of the scientist, the film is not a biopic.
Titled ‘Hawaizaada’, NDTV reported the actor explaining, “I cannot term this (Hawaizaada) film as a biopic because nothing is known about this person (Shivkar Bapuji Talpade). You know about sprinter Milkha Singh, boxer Mary Kom (MC Mary Kom) and freedom fighter Gandhiji (Mahatma Gandhi), but you don’t know much about Shivkar Talpade. So, technically, ‘Hawaizaada’ is not a biopic. But ‘Hawaizaada’ is based on true events. And I’m sure the audience is going to like it.’
Set to release on 30th January, ‘Hawaizaada’ will also be starring Pallavi Sharda and Mithun Chakraborty in pivotal roles.
