Phoolan Devi autobiography to be made into a web series
Rights of the book have been acquired by Kishor Arora, co-founder of Namah Pictures
I, Phoolan Devi, the autobiography of the famous bandit-turned-politician, is set to be made into a web series soon.
Rights of the book have been acquired by Kishor Arora, co-founder of Namah Pictures, and in a statement, he said, "Phoolan Devi is undoubtedly one of the most talked about personalities. There are important chapters and layers of her life that remain unexplored and the web series format will allow us the bandwidth to do that."
Umed Singh Bhaiya, husband of the late Phoolan Devi, said that "the truth of Phoolan's life should reach out to people. It's a tale of a rebel that should inspire women across the world to speak against any atrocity".
Shareen Mantri Kedia, co-founder of Namah Pictures, added, "In the current digital age, we feel that Phoolan Devi's stark and immersing tale will find a resonance in audiences across geographies and demographics."
Namah Pictures had produced filmmaker Majid Majidi's feature Beyond The Clouds as well as the web show Karenjit Kaur - The Untold Story of Sunny Leone.
