Biopic on life of Dr.Ambedkar

A biopic on the life of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar is being made in Tamil titled Baba Saheb with director Ajay Kumar directing it. He is also producing the film representing Run Horse Media.

Ajay tells that, “Every alternate movie in Kollywood is on rowdies and gangsters. I wanted to deviate from this commercial cocktail and try out my hand in filming a biopic of a national leader.” He asserts, “The film will focus on the lifetime of the social reformer and will not be projecting him as the caste leader.

” Talking about how he zeroed in on Raja Ganapathy for the titular role, he says, “It was not an easy task. I auditioned nearly 10,000 candidates, and finally my cinematographer Mohan introduced Raja Ganapathy who had worked in a film called Aaivu Koodam.

I felt he had an uncanny resemblance to Dr Ambedkar and with few makeup techniques, we could bring the former alive on screen.”

 The team is also looking out for faces to play poet Bharathi, EVR Periyar and other leaders, he adds.  After a gap, ace composer Deva has been roped in for music.
