You have seen Dhoni, and are going to see Kapil Dev. But let’s not leave this legend behind. Sourav Ganguly ‘The Real Bengal Tiger’ transformed Indian cricket and inspired his team to believe they can perform in overseas conditions. Thanks to his hard work and his faith in the young cricketers that our team is now at the top of world cricket. A biopic on him will educate the youth about his relentless contribution to a game we all love so dearly.
The founding father of the Republic of India deserves some cinematic recognition, as it is a wonderful way to reach the youth of our country. Not only was he an incredible visionary, but his involvement in campaigning and negotiating India’s independence, publishing journals, advocating political rights and social freedom for Dalits is also the reason why India stands so strong even to this date.
Sushma Swaraj remained to be a one of a kind woman in Indian Politics. Not only did she successfully juggled multiple political portfolios, but it was her oration, crowd control and her skilled demeanour that made her stand out from the rest of the people. And her legacy as our Foreign Exchange Minister will definitely go in the books. It is always harder for women to rise in Indian politics – and her journey deserves to be told.
The Tiger of Mysore and the pioneer of rocket artillery, Tipu Sultan had one of the richest stories of all Indian rulers. From his tricky alliance with Napolean Bonaparte to his intense resistance to the Britishers, I think a biopic on him will make crores.
76 years of age. But like a true Shahanshah, Amitabh continues to rule the silver screen. His is a story that is both thrilling and inspiring. Maybe his son can act in that biopic?
Even though the Iron Lady Of India deserves no introduction, Former Prime Minister Indira remains to be a powerful figure across our vivid history. Her rise to power and ultimate demise must be known to the public, and what better way to do it other than a movie?
A R Rehman
Hailed as the “Mozart of Madras,” Rahman has taken over the world many times and continues to be an inspiration for budding musicians everywhere. He is truly incredible, and deserves his story to be told.
Bharat Ratna Lata Mangeshkar has one of the richest voices on the planet. But her life hasn’t always been the easiest. After losing her father at the young age of 13, Lata struggled hard to support her family. Now, she has sung over 50000 songs in over 20 languages, and her story deserves to be told.
Do you love the Internet price these days? Then you must know the indubitable story of Mr Mukesh Ambani. Born to Dhirubhai Ambani, a modest businessman of India, Mukesh surpassed every expectation of an entrepreneur and is currently the richest man of Asia. He utilised all the opportunities thrown at him, and has a story worthy of being told.
Padma Bhushan Vikram Sarabhai’s perennial contribution to India’s astronomy remains unparalleled. From building The Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre, to leading ISRO, the youth must be acquainted with the legacy of this great personality.
Manvendra Singh Gohil
Manvendra Singh Gohil is the first openly gay Prince of the world. He came out to his family in 2002 and has lived his public life advocating for LGBTQ rights in all over India and all around the world. Being the flag bearer of this sensitive issue, and fighting the constant discrimination is not just hard, it is remarkable. Something that must be told to the world.
Our national hero, Kalpana Chawla was one of the seven crew members who died in the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster when the spacecraft disintegrated during its re-entry into the Earth’s atmosphere. From her time here in India, all the way to becoming a NASA astronaut, she really deserves a biopic of her own.
Hailed as the Chanakya of Indian Politics, Amit Shah works 16 hours a day and has truly transformed the course of politics and micromanagement. As the president of the world’s largest political party – he controls over 60000 workers and was responsible for landing the biggest mandate ever. His story of rising from a party worker in Gujarat to becoming India’s Home Minister is commendable and worth sharing.
Padma Vibhushan and Padma Bhushan, Ratan Tata is the country’s leading businessman and philanthropist. Ever since inheriting his father’s company, Ratan has controlled billions in his business and his innovative policies have revived a once dying industry. It would be fun to watch a hero play him in a biopic.
APJ Abdul Kalam Chand
Son. Student. Teacher. Aerospace Scientist. President. Citizen. Such is the vibrant legacy of our Former President APJ Abdul Kalam Azad. Being one of the most prolific political figures of modern India, he contributed to every aspect of India’s development. His journey from being born in a poor state of Tamil Nadu, to building India’s Aerospace and later, reaching to the Parliament, is a story worth telling.
