Raj Kumar Gupta, who is known for making gritty and compelling real-life inspired stories will now bring the extraordinary story of the greatest Indian spy to the silver screen. Raj is working on a film based on the life of Ravinder Kaushik – an actor turned RAW agent.
Mr. Kaushik is also known as The Black Tiger – a name given to him by former PM Indira Gandhi. This title was bestowed on him for his bravery and valuable contribution towards the country.
The rights to his amazing story to be brought to the silver screen for the first time has been given to Gupta by Ravinder Kaushik’s family.
Talking about Kaushik, Raj who is busy with the post-production of his upcoming film India’s Most Wanted said:
“Shri Ravinder Kaushik was India’s greatest spy. Interestingly, he was an actor before becoming a spy. It’s an emotional and remarkable story. We are at the scripting stage for the film. I am humbled and thankful to his family, who trusted me and gave me the rights to turn this unbelievable story into a film.”
On behalf of his family – Ravinder Kaushik’s sister, Mrs. Shashi Vashisth said:
“Bachpan se hi Desh bhakti ka Jazba uske dil mei tha. Desh bhakti par hi play likhta aur karta tha, bahut sunder bhi tha aur sab Vinod Khanna bulatey thaiy. I know my brother’s story is very unique and many people have approached us to make a film on him but it never felt right kyon ki humarey liye yeh Bahut personal hai. When Raj Kumar Gupta approached us, since we knew of his films like No One Killed Jessica we felt confident.He is a sensible filmmaker and he is the right person to tell my brothers’ story for the first time.”
