Rakeysh Mehra's next: Film with Swachh Bharat as backdrop

Wednesday, February 01, 2017

Swachh Bharat seems to have caught the imagination of Bollywood with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra making a film titled 'Mere Pyare Pradhan Mantri' which has as its backdrop the Modi government's sanitation initiative.

"The film is about an eight-year-old boy, Kanhaiya, who desires to make a toilet for his mother," said Mehra.

The film was inspired following a visit to Gandhigram and the profits from it will go in the making of more toilets, said the filmmaker.

"The film will be made with grass root crowd funding from NGOs or as part of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)."

"I tell the story of the land I come from and which I understand thoroughly like about Milkha Singh, Bhagat Singh, Mirzya etc but now that I have lived in Mumbai for some years and did research for the last three years on this script that I have dared to go ahead and make the film," Mehra added. He urged youngsters of the northeast to tell their own stories to the world.

"I don't know the stories of the northeast... I can't tell them but I can facilitate or produce them. Today the whole world has come together through the Internet and so now it is time to tell your stories to the world," he added.
