Biopic on anti-terror activist MS Bitta titled Zinda Saheed
The film will go on floors in the first-half of 2020
Producers Shailendra Singh and Priya Gupta have acquired the rights to make a film on anti-terror activist Mahendra Singh Bitta. Hailing from Punjab, MS Bitta survived an assassination attempt in 1993 and is known as ‘Indian’s most bombed man’, having survived 15 bomb attacks by terrorists. He is the chairman of the All-India Anti-Terrorist Front (AIATF) and a former chief of the Indian Youth Congress.
Titled Zinda Saheed, the film on Bitta’s life will go on floors in the first-half of 2020. The makers are in talk with celebrated actors and directors for the project.
In a statement, Shailendra said, “MS Bitta is a living legend, a true patriot. His story deserves to be told -- to inspire us all in these very divisive times. I thank MS Bitta for trusting us to tell his story. It will be a game-changer for Bollywood.”
Priya added, “MS Bitta’s life is a living example of how you can serve your country without a kursi (chair) or a wardi (uniform). Unlike our great leaders like Bhagat Singh and Subhash Chandra Bose whom we have not seen, but only know through their stories, MS Bitta is a zinda shaheed (living martyr). His life is truly inspiring -- we are very proud and excited to be making this film.”
