Ajay Devgan who got appreciation for his recently acclaimed film (on political issue) Aprahan, is going to do another film based on real incidences, on the life of a great artist - Raja Ravi Varma. The project will be produced by Bobby Bedi (Mangal Pandey fame).
Award winning cinematographer and film director Shaji N. Karun’s (Piravi, Swahom and Vanaprastham) is making this Hindi film. The film will not be a mere biography of the artist, but will delve into his relationship with a model - who inspired some of his best works. Search for the female lead, who will portray coveted role of the model Su****hi, is still on.
Shaji Says, “My film will be on the turbulent phase of the artist’s life”. Raja Ravi Varma - the royal artist, faced many problems understanding the art of painting in his beginning years. Afterwards he was responsible in giving a new dimension to Indian painting, which was limited during that period.
The film will start rolling from April and most of it will be shot in Pune and on locations in Maharashtra as Ravi Varma did some of his most famous works in Mumbai, where he met the model whose face launched a series of renowned paintings.
Ravi Varma is considered as modern among traditionalists and a rationalist among moderns and he brought Indian painting to the attention of the larger world.
