Amish Tripathi‘s latest novel Legend of Suheldev: The King Who Saved India is now being made into a feature film. The author will jointly produce the film under his banner Immortal Studios along with Wakaoo Films and Casa Media.

Trade analyst, Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter to announce the news. His tweet read, “ANNOUNCEMENT… #Suheldev – the novel by Amish – to be made into a film… Directed by Senthil Kumar… Produced by Wakaoo Films [Vipul D Shah, Ashwin Varde, Rajesh Bahl], Casa Media [Pranav Chaturvedi, Sujay Shankarwar] and Immortal Studios [Anish Tripathi, Aman Gurwada].

Have a look at his tweet—

The novel chronicles the life of King Suheldev, a semi-legendary Indian king hailing from Shravasti in Uttar Pradesh, who vanquished Mahmud of Ghazni’s army in Bahraich.

According to a report by FirstPost, speaking about the film adaptation, Amish said, “Maharaja Suheldev is one of India’s most consequential heroes from the 11th century, who is, sadly, relatively unknown to modern Indians. This tale carries a universal message of unity cutting across class, caste and religious barriers, a message that is particularly relevant for India today. Maharaja Suheldev’s story tells us that when we Indians are united, we are unbeatable. I am delighted that my book Legend of Suheldev is being converted into a movie to reach out to an even wider audience.”

The script is under construction and the producers will soon announce the name of the lead actor who will play King Suheldev.

The film is helmed by debutant director Senthil Kumar.
