According to Sandeep, it wasn't easy getting the rights from Sahara India Pariwar Chairman. Mr Roy has been approached by many for a biopic, but he was extremely reluctant about it. He had met him several times during the course of last year and was able to assure him that the film will not be made for mere financial gains but will be dealt with all honesty and will be factual, to an extent that many portions he might not like it. Finally, they were able to get the rights and they are upbeat about the project. Sandeep Singh, India's youngest filmmaker who has well-acclaimed biopics like National award-winning Mary Kom, PM Narendra Modi, Sarbjit, Aligarh to his credit has clutched the rights for a biopic which was vied by a number of production houses. The story of Saharasri, as he is fondly called, is the most fascinating real-life story available at present. Beginning from a small town in Uttar Pradesh to becoming a founder of an organisation of 14 lakh workers working with it; second largest in India after railways, of one of the most influential people with stars from sports to Bollywood to politics oscillating around him, of controversies and audacity, of emotions, rise and resilience, it has all, to be a delight for filmmakers as well as the audience.
