Every Indian or rather the whole world knows that Gandhi was full of truth, love, non-violence and will. He was a great leader and a symbol of peace. The Mahatma changed the course of Indian history with his extraordinary works and influenced many leaders across the world. Applause Entertainment of Aditya Birla Group has announced a biopic on the life of Gandhi to bring to life the story of Indian independence from the perspective of our great freedom fighters. The series will be based on two books by renowned historian and author Ramachandra Guha, Gandhi Before India and Gandhi – The Years That Changed the World.

The series will tell lesser-known stories from life, from Gandhi’s early days and his work in South Africa to the Indian struggle. The situation that played a vital role in making young Gandhi a Mahatma will also be covered and the story of contemporary, incredible personalities of the freedom movement will also be seen.

Sameer Nair, CEO, Applause Entertainment said, “Ramachandra Guha is a great historian and storyteller, and we are honored to have his classic books Gandhi Before India and Gandhi – The Years That Changed the World on screen. The Mahatma and the symbol who could think of none other than Gandhi to revive his philosophy of peace and love.It is the story of the birth of modern India for audiences across the world.

Renowned historian and biographer Ramachandra Guha said that Gandhi’s work changed the world. His life was a great story. Which was spread over the three great countries India, England and South Africa. He fought for freedom and rights of the downtrodden. During this journey he made many friends and also some enemies. I am glad that my books on Gandhi are now being adapted into an ambitious and compelling series produced by Aplos Entertainment. I am sure it will bring the complex outline of Gandhi’s life and the moral essence of his teachings to a worldwide audience. Prateek Gandhi said, “I am a firm believer in Gandhian philosophy and its values, which reflects simplicity in its purest form. Personally, I try to imbibe many of his virtues and teachings in my life. Playing the role of Mahatma has been very close to my heart since my theater days and now it is an honor to play the role of Mahatma again on screen. It is a huge responsibility to play this role with pride and confidence. I look forward to this journey with Sameer Nair and his team at Applause Entertainment.
