And I consider myself so fortunate that it came to me because it’s just one of those most compelling underdog stories that you’ve ever heard. We tend to sometimes segment our stories – this is a sports story, this is a drama story. Actually, it’s an amazing story of a man who refused to give up and when you read it, you feel so inspired and motivated. I felt that this story has to be told to this country because it’s a hero that we’ve completely forgotten. And when you see the film, you realise what all this person achieved and how he achieved it – it would be criminal if you did not celebrate him.”
