On Thursday freedom fighter Birsa Munda's birth anniversary was celebrated. On this day Pa Ranjith announced that he would be making his Bollywood directorial debut. And his debut will happen with a Birsa Munda biopic.

He is excited about the life of freedom fighter Birsa Munda. He also thinks that it could be interesting for international audiences. Shareen Mantri Kedia and Kishor Arora are collaborating with Ranjith for the biopic on the life of the tribal leader, who was an important figure in the history of the Indian independence movement.

"When Namah Picture’s Shareen, Kishor and I met to discuss Birsa early this year, we realised that we shared the same passion to narrate this inspiring story that will make a brilliant feature film, which will appeal to the Indian audience as well as the international audience. I am happy to be working with Namah and excited by the commitment that they have expressed towards telling Birsa’s story. Birsa’s life transcends time and I am sure it will inspire the audience, as it has all of us," Ranjith said.
