Much celebrated filmmaker Rajesh Mapuskar, who recently won the prestigious National Award and two Filmfare Marathi Awards for his film, Ventilator is now all set to make a  digital series on a popular novel The Men Who Killed Gandhi. Written by Manohar Malgaonkar, the book was first published in 1978 and was much in the news about its intriguing subject.

Speaking about the project, Rajesh Mapuskar said, “History fascinates me. I got immersed in this huge slice of history, Bapu, when I worked on Lage Raho Munnabhai. Twelve years after that, Vikram came to me with the proposal to make The Men Who Killed Gandhi. I didn’t hesitate and immediately said yes! I was getting the chance to work on a project about Bapu. And to investigate and understand ‘the other side’ of things. I hope I can do justice to the project. I am very excited. 

The series is produced Abundantia Entertainment which has acquired the rights to Malgaonkar’s book. It’s also said that Abundantia plans to adapt the book into a multi-season, original digital series, for premium on-demand content platforms. The series will be co-produced by Rajesh Mapuskar and Akashdeep Sabir.

Vikram Malhotra, CEO – Abundantia, is thrilled about the company’s latest project in the digital content space. “Fact is stranger than fiction. The late Manohar Malgaonkar’s book is a riveting account of the method and the madness behind the assassination that shook the world. We are excited to bring this story to the new generation in a multi-season series format. I am also delighted to collaborate with Rajesh whose in-depth knowledge on the subject will be a great asset.”
