Vajpayee, a senior BJP leader and one of the founding members of the Bharatiya Jana Sangh (BJS), died on August 16 in 2018 after a prolonged illness.

“‘The Untold Vajpayee’ is one of my most ambitious projects and it gives me a feeling of immense honour and joy to be able to put up this unsung hero onto the big screen. Also, I believe not everyone knows the real side of Atal Bihari Vajpayeeji. While reading this book, I also discovered quite a lot about his personality traits, the work done by him during his tenure as a Prime Minister for our country,” said Sharma.

“These all unseen and untold traits of his personality inspired me to put his story out to the world and inspire other people as well.”

Ahmad shared the scripting of the biopic has already started. “Once the scripting is completed, we shall finalise the director and the actors for the film. The tentative title of the movie is ‘The Untold Vajpayee’,” he added.
