Biopics are on a roll, after Sanju released. All B-town actors are happily gearing up to portray lives of people they have never imagined living! The next big announcement on similar lines came from Emraan Hashmi that too through Twitter. The actor we have not seen on silver screen for quite some time is now set to star in a flick “Father’s Day” which shall be directed by Shantanu Baagchi.

In portraying a detective on screen, media and audiences are rightly wondering how this star will prepare himself to land into a detective’s shoes. Suryakant Bhande Patil is the man whose life shall be impersonated by the director on silver screen this time. An immense inspiration for the administration and normal everyday common man as well, this man solved 120 child kidnapping cases for free. A man we rarely hear of in our everyday lives, is actually a hero we all need in a world of danger; child abusers and child rights violators. The problem of Child Rights has been vehement for a long period of time. Non-governmental organizations and government agencies have worked through time to prevent child workers and abusing.
An issue some people are still ignorant about, has to be spoken out loud. A film on a man who solved cases of child kidnapping may not solve all problems but it is definitely a promising step towards more awareness. The film titled “Father’s Day” shall be produced by Emraan Hashmi himself along with Priya Gupta and Kalpana Udyawar. Written by Ritesh Shah, the film sounds promising and excitement is anticipated to build up very soon.

Much details is not known about the film but popular notion is, the film will be based on the detective’s work more than his daily life. The film is slated to go on floor in the year 2019.
It is raining biopics in Bollywood and it is a test of time, how long it shall take the audience to get bored of a string of inspirational films coming from the industry. Emraan Hashmi’s return to films and that to in a completely new avatar is something to really watch out for. The actor has always had a reputation of being a part of certain films which have not been universally watched or even accepted, barring a very few. Hence, in a film which is centered on a courageous man headed towards a journey of cleansing the society, will definitely be a surprise for the audience.
