Sunil Shastri: 'The biopic should inspire generations'

By HT

Mumbai, April 22 -- The makers of a biopic on Lal Bahadur Shastri want to go about things the right way. To get the details of the film right, they have roped in the former Indian Prime Minister's 63-year-old son, Sunil Shastri. The politician, who lives in New Delhi, insists that the nation is in dire need of righteous leaders such as his father. And that's why he has decided to help the debutants who are helming the biopic.

"Today, people are losing confidence in the leadership. The need of the hour is for the leadership to be able to create confidence among the masses," says Sunil, a member of Congress. The film, Jai Jawan Jai Kissan, is being produced by first-time filmmakers Madan Lal Khurana, Seema Chakerverty and Surjit Sin
