Film ‘FAUJA’ – Three Creative Powerhouses come together to bring to life the Greatest Human Story ever told

Aleya Motion Magic, ThinkInk Picturez, and Blue Lotus Creative’s join hands to bring an Omung Kumar B film to the Big Screen.

A story that necessitated the collaboration of three creative powerhouses namely, Omung Kumar B, Raaj Shaandilyaa, and Kunal Shivdasani is now all set to see the light of day very soon.

Pooling their individual sensibilities together, the three filmmakers announce ‘Fauja’ based on the book Turbaned Tornado written by Khushwant Singh and published by Rupa Publications, on the real life story of the 109-year-old Fauja Singh (better known as the Sikh Superman), who stunned the world with his age-defying energy by shattering  world records as a marathon runner.

The three creative powerhouses combine forces for the biopic, which is touted to inspire generations with an amazing story that captures his fascinating journey over the decades.

Directed by Omung Kumar B, the biopic chronicles the life of Fauja Singh, the world’s Oldest Marathon Runner whose rollercoaster-ride-like journey is nothing short of inspiring.

With soul-stirring dramas such as Mary Kom and Sarbjit to his credit, Director and Partner Producer, Omung Kumar B says, “The story of Fauja Singh depicts the insurmountable odds stacked against him and what sheer power of will can make of someone who is challenged medically, by age and by society.”

Producer Kunal Shivdasani, Aleya Motion Magic says, “It is a beautiful story about a man whose life takes him on an epic journey making him a world icon as he discovers his passion for running marathons; eventually that guided him to make an impact on the world by bringing about a change to humanity.

Omung is a dear friend and we share the same vision for the film, he has helmed Sarbjit and Mary Kom – two of the best and most successful biopics in the country and so having him chair the director’s role for this film was a unanimous decision.

We are very excited to offer this story to viewers, who have been deprived of cinema as we know it for quite some time. Our film intends to make the amazing journey of Fauja Singh personal to everyone watching it.”

Partner Producer, Raaj Shaandilyaa says, “Fauja Singh is the real king and we are all honoured to present his story in the form of a cinematic experience for the Indian diaspora world over. This story takes us on a journey through time and makes the realization of what our grandparents have been through hit home. It is a film that promises an instant connect.”
