Makers want Akshay to play ex-ATS chief Raghuvanshi in biopic

Wednesday, March 16, 2016

Noted screenwriter-lyricist Jalees Sherwani, who is penning a film on former ATS chief K P Raghuvanshi, has expressed the desire to cast well-known actor Akshay Kumar in the lead role. The biopic on Raghuvanshi, titled "C 60", is about a commando squad formed by the officer to tackle Naxalism.

"Producer Manju Bharti wanted to make a film on KP Raghuvanshi and the force that he formed to combat Naxalism. She found the story quite intriguing," Jalees said.

The makers are working on the script and it will take a couple of months to finish it. The film will go on the floors by the year-end. "We haven't zeroed-in on any actor for the film yet. I think Akshay would be apt for the role of KP Raghuvanshi as he has that personality. We will take a decision regarding casting, once the scripting is over," said Jalees, who has penned lyrics for several Salman Khan-starrer films like "Dabangg", "Dabangg 2", "Wanted" and others.

Apparently, Raghuvanshi was involved in tackling the Naxal menace in Maharashtra's Gadchiroli district. He had even introduced the innovative concept of a C-60 force comprising 60 police personnel to contain the problem of the ultras. The makers have had several meetings with Raghuvanshi as they want to portray things in a right way on screen.

"We have been having several discussions with Raghuvanshi. He has been of great help. Even though we are hearing the story from the horse's mouth, still it's a challenge to portray a personality like Raghuvanshi on screen," Jalees said. Besides portraying the Naxal issue, the film would also have a romantic angle, he added.
