Producer Rhea Kapoor and director Shashanka Ghosh will collaborate on a biopic on spiritual leader Jaggi Vasudev, Mumbai Mirror reported. Vasudev is the founder of the non-profit ogranisation Isha Foundation, which offers yoga programmes around the world. Vasudev was conferred the Padma Vibhushan last year.
Ghosh will hand in the screenplay to Isha Foundation for approval over the next few months, he told the newspaper. “I love the concept of a biopic because there is a huge degree of truth already existing through historical events,” Ghosh told Mumbai Mirror. “The story of a human being becomes a biopic when they have done something worthy of sharing, something people have been inspired by.”
The as-yet-untitled biopic marks Ghosh’s third collaboration with Kapoor. They have previously worked together on Khoobsurat (2014) and Veere Di Wedding (2018). “If a sequel to Veere Di Wedding ever happens, I know Rhea will certainly consider me for the director’s chair,” Ghosh told the newspaper.
