The two academy award-winning lyricists and music composers – Gulzar and AR Rahman have come together to compose the music track in the biopic of the legendry businessman, Mr. Subrata Roy – the chairman of Sahara India Pariwar. In July 2021, Sandeep Singh, who owns the ‘Legend Global Studio’ acquired the rights to produce the biopic.
The celebrated poet and lyricist Gulzar said that he is thrilled to collaborate with Rahman. Since this is not their first music collaboration, Rahman said that he is also happy to be on board. Earlier, they teamed up in films such as ‘Dil Se’, ‘Guru’, ‘Yuvvraj’ and the Oscar award-winning film ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ to compose music.
Sandeep expressed his elation as both the legends agreed to come together for this project. He is a great admirer of both AR Rahman and Gulzar Saab’s work. Sandeep added that Mr. Roy’s journey is filled with grit, determination, and success, and with the support of these two legends, his dream of releasing this biopic on 70 mm would be fulfilled.
The biopic will shed light on the journey of the self-made entrepreneur, who defied the odds and established one of India’s biggest businesses from the scratch. Hailing from a small town in Uttar Pradesh, Mr. Roy faced numerous challenges throughout his life, but his dedication and commitment turned his venture into the second-largest employer in the country, after the Indian Railways, employing 14 lakh people. Mr. Roy was featured among the “10 Most Influential People of India’. His journey is enigmatic, inspiring, and a bit controversial as well. His is a saga of emotion, rise, and resilience, and the biopic will be delightful for the audience and the filmmakers.
“Mr. Roy’s story is full of surprises, and no one has dared explore it, remaining largely untold,” Sandeep said in a statement. He has earlier produced films like ‘Narendra Modi’, ‘Sarabjit’, ‘Bhoomi’, and so on. The title and cast of the biopic will be revealed soon.
