A movie on mathematician and astronomer Aryabhatta

(From a recent print edition of the daily newspaper, The Hindu)

Veteran Bollywood actor and film maker Manoj Kumar is working on his next directorial venture which would be based on mathematician and astronomer Aryabhatta.

“I am going to return as a director soon. I am working on a film on Aryabhatta. It is an interesting story to tell viewers about his contributions,” said Kumar, who was announced the winner of the Dadasaheb Phalke Award.

“Three years we have been working on script, as it is a difficult subject to deal with,” the 78-year-old added. Aryabhatta was a pioneer during the classical age of Indian mathematics and Indian astronomy.

Kumar is scouting for new comers for the film.

“We are working with Kishore Namit Kapoor who has trained some of the most prominent film actors. He will help  us with it (casting),” Kumar said. — PTI.
