Almighty Motion Picture has nabbed the rights to the great legend Hari Singh Nalwa’s biopic! The movie and web series will be based on the book by Vanit Nalwa — a direct descendant of the legendary Hari Singh Nalwa, who was a general in Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s army. After painstakingly researching the life of his fearless ancestor for 12 years, Vanit Nalwa released the book, Hari Singh Nalwa, Champion of the Khalsaji, in 2009. This upcoming biopic is considered to be the most authentic account of the general’s extraordinary life.
Producer Prabhleen Kaur, who has been a part of movies such a Shahid and FryDay, is elated with this acquisition and eager to tell the story of the most feared victor of all time.
Expressing her excitement she said, “It’s the biggest pride for any Sikh to get an opportunity to even be a tiny part of a project on S. Hari Singh Nalwa Ji & I feel it’s a huge blessing of Guru Nanak Dev Ji and my grandfather Sant Baba Jaswant Singh Ji that Vanit Nalwa Ji gave me this fortunate opportunity to produce such a legendary chapter of Indian history. Every country in the world through the medium of visual showcases their legends and I think it is time for us to go on the front foot. Not only India but the whole world should know that there were generals like S. Hari Singh Nalwa Saheb who never lost a single battle, whose territory was much bigger than that of Julius Caesar!”
Kaur further adds, “We plan to make both, a web series & a feature film with this story. I’m sure people will also feel proud of their history and their real superheroes.”
To watch the story of a man who joined the Sikh Amry at the innocent age of 13, killed a tiger at 17, and had already achieved his first victory at 18, is undoubtedly something to look forward to. Author Vanit Nalwa, who is also thrilled to finally have this story reach the masses said, “It is a story waiting to be told, the most empowering history of the nineteenth century (in the Indian subcontinent) at a time when all the regional powers were succumbing to the East India Company, a new empire was being consolidated in the northwest with the Afghan Empire to its west and the East India Company along the other frontier. It is a story of empowerment, courage, loyalty, and complete dedication to the cause of the nation.”
Expressing his delight at Almighty Motion Pictures’ acquisition he said, “Sardar Hari Singh Nalwa dedicated his life in the service of the Almighty, so it is very appropriate that Almighty Motion Picture has acquired the rights to the book. I am thrilled.”
Knowing the journey of the longest-serving commander of Sikh Khalsa Fauj who fought in 22 battles and remained undefeated will be nothing short of inspirational.
