According to a source in MidDay, the courtroom drama would be named ‘The Untold Story of C Sankaran Nair’ and will be directed by newbie director Karan Singh Tyagi.

In 1915, Nair was a member of the Viceroy’s Executive Council, but after the Jallianwala Bagh massacre in 1919, he resigned. Raghu and Pushpa Palat’s book, ‘The Case That Shook the Empire,’ is said to be the inspiration for the movie. According to sources, it will follow the lawyer’s fight against the British Raj to unearth the role of Punjab Lieutenant Governor Michael O’Dwyer in the slaughter.
