Sentinel Digital Desk

Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar says a biopic on the late trade union leader and politician George Fernandes is a very interesting project, but he won't have the time to direct it. Senior Shiv Sena leader and MP Sanjay Raut had shared his plans to make a biopic on Fernandes who passed away here on Tuesday.

Following the announcement on Tuesday, Raut, who also served as the writer of the film "Thackeray", a biopic on Sena founder-patriarch Bal Thackeray, told Mirror: "I seek guidance from Shoojit as he is a close friend and I'd love to have a talented director like him on board. But we're yet to finalise names."

The filmmaker, known for films like Piku, Vicky Donor and Madras Cafe, said: "A biopic on Shri George Fernandes is a very interesting project and I congratulate Mr. Sanjay Raut on taking it up." "While I'm always available for any guidance or help that I can offer on the film, I'm currently very busy with the prep work on my next projects. Therefore, I won't have the time to direct it. I wish him and his team all the very best," he added. (IANS)
