Ratan Tata has been in the news since his business, Tata Group, was handed the reigns of Air India from the government a few days ago. We’ve now learned that this much-loved businessman’s life narrative, as well as the Tata family’s, will be chronicled in an upcoming web series.
The rights to the book ‘The Tatas: How A Family Built A Business and A Nation,’ penned by acclaimed writer Girish Kuber, have been purchased by Almighty Motion Picture, the production company behind the highly successful erotic show Mastram (2020). Almighty Motion Picture’s Prabhleen Kaur Sandhu acknowledged to a business newspaper that they do indeed have the rights to the acclaimed novel and that they intend to make at least three seasons. She also stated that the show will shed light not only on Ratan Tata but also on his forefathers.
While the writing and research have already begun, the casting will not begin until the screenplay has been finalised. However, sources suggest that the producers are seeking for well-known actors to represent Ratan Tata and other members of the Tata family.
“The whole country is in awe of the contribution of Tatas in building our nation. It’s one show that everyone will like to see. Hence, it has huge potential and the makers want to sign big but talented names, as it can enhance the hype around the show,” said a source. The filming is expected to begin in 2022-end.
