Sharing an image with the post, Karan’s caption further read, “Dharma Productions and Still and Still Media Collective present The untold story of the real-life Indian spymaster – Rameshwar Nath Kao. An adaptation of the book R.N. Kao: Gentleman Spymaster written by Nitin Gokhale, the film will tell the story of Kao who founded India’s external intelligence agency – R&AW and how he went on to become a success story in the world of international espionage.”
Well, it certainly will be interesting to see Hrithik play a spymaster after the magnanimous success of his last outing, WAR. For those of you unversed R.N. Kao is the founder of the RAW, i.e the Research And Analysis Wing of India. This Dharma production will bring to life the private life of the man who bought is India’s foreign intelligence organization, established in September 1968 to existence!
While we are certainly excited let us know what do you think about the film. Karan Johar is also busy prepping for his dream project Takht and also has Dostana 2 in the pipeline. KJo also has Vicky Kaushal starrer, Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship in the making.
