    The much-awaited biopic on Gandhian activist Anna Hazare will hit around 600-700 cinemas all over India on Friday, the film’s producers said on Thursday.

    “Anna: Kisan Baburao Hazare” is a 130-minute Hindi feature film which has been shot for over a year in his village Ralegan-Siddhi in Ahmednagar in Maharashtra, Mumbai, New Delhi, Jammu and Kashmir and Rajasthan, said producer Manindra Jain.

    The film’s teaser was released a month ago, followed by extensive promos in the media.

    Hazare has taken part in around 10 major promotional events in Mumbai and other parts of India. He will also do the rounds of several cinema halls and multiplexes in Mumbai.

    “The film dwells on the life of 79-year-old Hazare, who is a revered social figure. The story starts from his childhood days, his stint with the army, his attempt to commit suicide once, his post-army struggles within and outside, his rural transformation experiences starting with Ralegan-Siddhi, his ‘India Against Corruption’ movement culminating in several laws like RTI and Lokpal legislations,” Manindra Jain told IANS.

    The film is produced by Rise Pictures Pvt Ltd and directed by Shashank Udapurkar, the maiden directorial venture of well-known Marathi actor who also plays the lead role of Anna Hazare.

    Actress Tanisha Mukherjee will essay the role of a young journalist who records Hazare’s social-political travails in the biopic injected with three Hindi songs, composed by the late music director Ravindra Jain.

    “It is our honest attempt to create inspiration for the masses through the film,” Manindra Jain said.

    Starting with Hindi, the movie will be later dubbed in English for global audiences and in other Indian languages.
