For all those who don’t know, Maninderjeet Singh Bitta is the chairman of the All-India Anti-Terrorist Front, and former chief of the Indian Youth Congress. He survived an assassination bid in the mid-1990s. He had also joined politics, but later left it and made it his life’s mission to get terrorists punished and help families of war heroes.
Based on MS Bitta’s life, producers Shailendra Singh and Priya Gupta will be soon working on a film titled ‘Zinda Shaheed’ that will go on floors in the first half of 2020.
Confirming the same, Singh said:
“M.S. Bitta is a living legend. A true patriot. His story deserves to be told, to inspire us all in these very divisive times. His story will inspire the 600 million youth of our country. I thank M.S. Bitta for trusting us to tell his story. It will be a game-changer for Bollywood.”
Celebrated directors and actors are being talked to. Before kick-starting the making of the film on Tuesday Bitta, Singh and Gupta will seek blessings at the Siddhivinayak temple.
