The film will be directed by Robbie Grewal. Speaking about the project and Revathi Roy, John Abraham said in an official statement, “I’m very happy that we are producing this very upbeat story that combines the best of entrepreneurial twists with an extremely dramatic personal life. Revathi’s journey is that of a vivacious, funny, full of life, spirited woman who despite all odds has risen like a phoenix and has been continuously working towards empowering underprivileged women. It’s a story that we just HAD to tell and who better to do that with than Robbie.”
The story of the film has been adapted from the book “Who is Revathi Roy” by Swati Lodha. Speaking about the film, Revathi Roy said, “I’m very happy that John, Robbie and Anil have come together to tell a story which is not just my own but of every woman who was given a chance. Women are born fighters and an opportunity given to them never goes waste. All we need to provide is an ecosystem for them to flourish. In a small way, that is what my team and I have done.”
