Former President of India Dr APJ Abdul Kalam will soon be seen in a Bollywood childrens’ film titled “Mein Kalam Hoon” which is being directed by Madhav Pandeya and produced by the SMILE Foundation.
The theme of the film is based on Dr Kalam’s famous quote, “Everyone is free to dream, so dream big.” The story, set in Rajasthan, is about a boy who is inspired by the former President and dares to dream big. In the film Dr Kalam plays himself.
Dr Kalam, an aeronautical engineer and scientist whose work on ballistic missiles and space rocket technology earned him the name ‘Missile Man of India’, has done this Hindi film with children because it gave him the opportunity to work with kids.
Bollywood baddy Gulshan Grover and French actress Sophie Brosste play cameos in the film.
“Mein Kalam Hoon” will be premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and then go to other film festivals around the world.
