Producer Sunil Bohra, who is planning to make an adaptation of Sanjaya Baru’s book “The Accidental Prime Minister: The Making and Unmaking of Manmohan Singh”, says that it will take at least six months to create a script of the film.
Having produced movies like “Gangs of Wasseypur”, “Shaitan” and “Saheb Biwi aur Gangster”, Bohra is planning on filming an adaptation of the book which talks about former prime minister Manmohan Singh.
“Right now the filming is in a very premature state, we will take atleast six months to create a script and after that there will be more clarity on this. First we need to lock the script and then other things shall follow,” Bohra told IANS.
