Superstar Prabhas is slated to launch the first look of ace filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s special feature on our Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his birthday, September 17.

Bhansali’s Mann Bairagi is based on a story from Modi’s life that has not been in the public domain so far. Bhansali is producing the film along with Mahaveer Jain, and it is written and directed by Sanjay Tripathy.

The makers feel that every great achiever’s life has a defining moment, and Mann Bairagi is all about that. “What interested me in the story was it’s universal appeal and message. The story was very well researched, and the turning point of our PM’s life as a young man really intrigued me. I felt that it’s a story that is unheard of and needs to be told,” Bhansali explains.

Jain adds that the content will inspire today’s youth, which is what attracted him to the film.

Meanwhile, Tripathy is certain that this film will touch a chord with everyone. “For me, it’s a human interest story about the self-discovery of a person who went on to become such a strong leader of our country,” he says.
