Sankaran Nair fought the British Raj in court to unearth the truth about the Jallianwallah Baug tragedy, and Karan Johar recently stated that he will produce a film based on the historical judicial struggle.
A statement by Karan Johar read, “Sankaran Nair’s bravery ignited freedom struggle across the country and is a testament to the power of fighting for truth.”
The star-cast will be confirmed soon, according to the ace producer. Karan and his director, Karan Tyagi, are presently in talks with Akshay Kumar for the project, according to our sources.
“It has all the elements that an Akshay Kumar film is known for and AK is definitely their first choice for the project. While a couple of meetings have already taken place, the paperwork is yet to be done,” a source told Bollywood Hungama.
“Akshay has loved the script and the idea of this film, but his only issue is the timeline of shoot. His diary is packed for the next 1 year and is working out on the date diary before committing to the project,” the source added.
