Life Struggle of Shrikant Bola
Srikanth Bola, who hails from a small inconspicuous village in rural Andhra Pradesh, has faced and overcame many difficulties in life. Born blind to poor, uneducated parents, Srikanth has faced immense resistance and struggle to pursue a career in science after Class X to fight a long-running legal battle with the state. But he had big dreams. Not only did he pass his class X and XII exams, but he also became the first international blind student to study at the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the United States. A powerful, truly phenomenal pioneer who believes that vision is more than vision and has more to do with the mind! Rajkummar Rao is overjoyed and considers it an honor to play the character of Srikkanth. The actor said that Shrikant Bola is an inspiration! It is indeed a privilege to play such an inspiring personality who has gone through a lot of hardships and yet, rose up like a phoenix! I am really looking forward to playing the role of Srikkanth. I am delighted to collaborate again with Bhushan sir on this compelling project.
Srikanth’s journey truly inspiring
T-Series Managing Director and Chairman Bhushan Kumar talks about the opportunity to produce a biopic about his life, his absolutely incredible personality and his story that has inspired millions. The story of Shrikant Bola bears testimony to the very adage of acting against him. Even after facing so many challenges since birth, do not let anything hinder your dreams. His journey is truly inspiring. And it is indeed a privilege to be associated with a person like him. The character’s personality is such that only an actor of caliber like Rajkummar Rao can justify it and we are happy to have such a good actor on board. Tushar Hiranandani’s approach to showcasing this captivating story is quirky. As thrilled as we are to be making this film, we are equally excited to see this compelling story of Srikkanth for the audience!
The film will release in theaters on May 20
