Freedom fighter Usha Mehta’s nephew to bring her life story to the screen?

Over the past few weeks, rumours have been circulating about Karan Johar producing a movie on freedom fighter, Usha Mehta. The achievements of Mehta have also inspired another storyteller in Ketan Mehta, none other than nephew to the freedom fighter. Mehta is developing a film on the Gandhian, who had helped establish Congress Radio – the underground radio station that amplified Mahatma Gandhi’s message of peaceful rebellion during the ‘Quit India’ movement.

Mehta’s love for biopics is known, having made ‘Mangal Pandey: The Rising’ (2005) and ‘Manjhi: The Mountain Man’ (2015), reports Mid Day. A source says that the filmmaker is drafting the final script, “Ketan has simultaneously begun pre-production, and aims to kick off the film by late 2021. He has narrowed down his choices for the lead to Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar. Given the actors’ busy date diaries after the second lockdown, the casting will be locked by November.”
