ZEE5 Global to premiere ‘Main Atal Hoon’ this month

ZEE5 Global has announced the world digital premiere of the biographical drama, ‘Main Atal Hoon’ on March 14. Starring the versatile National award-winning actor Pankaj Tripathi in the role of former Prime Minister Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee and directed by the acclaimed National award-winning filmmaker Ravi Jadhav, ‘Main Atal Hoon’ takes viewers on an extraordinary journey through the life and political legacy of one of India’s most iconic and illustrious leaders.

‘Main Atal Hoon’ traces the political journey of this tall parliamentarian of over four decades, who was conferred the Bharat Ratna in December 2014. It was Atalji who prepared the foundations of an India that is ready to take on the mantle of global leadership in the 21st century as he irreversibly changed India’s place in the world. Vajpayee’s legacy continues to serve as a guiding light for present and future political leaders as in his simplicity and integrity, in his dignity and empathy, and a sense of personal non-attachment to the office, he became an inspiration for a nation of youth.

From arriving at Parliament on a bullock cart to protest fuel price hike to representing India at the UN as an Opposition leader, Vajpayee has left behind a political legacy that few can rival. Atal Bihari Vajpayee had a decisive and irreversible effect on India’s strategic thinking and was instrumental in the country’s many strategic decisions including putting India firmly on the nuclear weapons map of the world, setting up a telecom revolution, successfully concluding and winning the Kargil war, among many other victories.

The film, produced by Vinod Bhanushali, Sandeep Singh, and Kamlesh Bhanushali under the banner of Bhanushali Studios Limited and Legend Studios, sheds light on the multifaceted persona of Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee, capturing his essence not just as a political figure but also as a gentleman with infinite patience, an uncompromising patriot, a gifted orator, and a leader who was way ahead of his times.

Manish Kalra, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 India said, “We at ZEE5 stand true to our philosophy of bringing forth real and relatable stories of remarkable Indians who have inspired the nation irreversibly. After the success of Sirf Ek Banda Kaafi Hai, Tarla and Sam Bahadur, we are thrilled for the premiere of ‘Main Atal Hoon’ which is another inspiring story of an ordinary man who went on to change the history of India and its place in the world. ‘Main Atal Hoon’ not only showcases the political legacy of one of India’s most iconic and illustrious leaders but also sheds light on the remarkable gentleman that Atal Bihari Vajpayee was behind all the politics. Pankaj Tripathi has delivered another impactful performance in ‘Main Atal Hoon’, and we are sure that the movie will inspire and connect with our audience”.

Lead actor, Pankaj Tripathi said, “It was a real honour for me to get to portray one of the most illustrious leaders of our country who laid the foundation for our country’s success. While I was aware of Atal Ji and his remarkable political journey, this film introduced me to many more inspiring qualities and facets of his life which have now left an indelible mark on my life. Portraying Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee has truly been one of the highlights of my career and for that, I am grateful. Now that the film is marking its world digital debut on ZEE5, I urge all Indians across the world to watch the remarkable story of this simple man and take back many lessons”.

Director Ravi Jadhav said, “Pankaj Tripathi was the only choice for ‘Main Atal Hoon’ as he has the soft qualities of this iconic man, and I am glad that he agreed to be a part of this film as his involvement truly made this journey even more remarkable. Main Hoon Atal is our little tribute to Atal ji – an inspiring leader who was way ahead of his time and now, with the film releasing on ZEE5, I sincerely hope that the film reaches the mind and the heart of every Indian across the globe as there is so much to learn and imbibe from this visionary man”.

Producer Vinod Bhanushali said, “We are immensely proud to have been able to bring to life the journey and legacy of such an inspiring man and India’s 3-time Prime Minister, Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee. And what made the project even more special was the chance to work with such talented individuals, including Pankaj Tripathi and Ravi Jadhav. I believe that our combined dedication and passion for this project deeply connected and resonated with the people and now with the film’s world digital premiere of ZEE5, we are hoping to strike a chord with many more people across the world”.
