If the latest
buzz doing the round of industry circles is to be believed, Amitabh Bachchan is
likely to be roped in to play the lead role in the Ram Jethmalani biopic to be
produced by Ronnie Screwvala.
The film is going to be based on the biography written by Susan Adelman titled ‘The Rebel” A Biography Of Ram Jethmalani.
It is yet to be decided who will be directing the film. One of the names that has been in running for the same is Rajkumar Gupta of No On Killed Jessica fame. It is said that Ronnie is not very keen on making this a very commercial and big project. He want to tell the saga as it was – the story of a boy, who fled for his life during Partition and became the biggest legal eagle in India, is inspirational and motivational.
