Talking about the movie, the tale revolves around Shiva Keshavan who is a six-time Winter Olympian. He is also the first Indian representative to compete in luge at the Winter Olympic Games. He is crowned as ‘India’s Fastest Man on Ice.’ Kunal Kapoor is extremely excited to bring this story on the table and make people know about such an incredible and inspiring story.
Revealing the news, Kunal Kapoor shared to a leading daily, “I’ve been writing stories since my days as an assistant director. And I would love to bring those stories to life not only as an actor but also as a producer and director. As an actor, you have little control over what stories you get a chance to tell. You can only choose from what you are offered and you’re part of someone else’s vision. But as a producer, you have a chance to bring your own vision to life.”
Further talking about the selection of the story, he added, “He is an amazing athlete. What drew me to Shiva Keshavan was not only the fact that he has represented India in the Olympics six times, but that it was also a story about the spirit of India and the incredible things we manage to achieve with limited resources. It’s a story of resilience and the path less taken; it’s also a celebration of our culture and diversity.”
On the work front, the actor will be next seen delivering a power pack performance in the most awaited magnum opus ‘The Empire’. Kunal Kapoor paints the role of Mughal emperor Babur in this upcoming web series. It is bankrolled by Disney+Hotstar and Nikkhil Advani’s Emmay Entertainment. This historical series brings together Shabana Azmi, Dino Morea, Drashti Dhami and Aditya Seal in pivotal roles along with Kunal Kapoor.
