Gurdaspur: Bollywood filmmakers are smitten by the charitable initiatives of billionaire philanthropist and Dubai-based NRI Surinder Pal Singh Oberoi, who donates 98 per cent of his earnings to ensure the downtrodden lead a decent life.

Mahesh Bhatt is directing a 2 hour 40 minute biopic on the life and times of the businessman. Ajay Devgun will be playing Oberoi which is being produced by Paramount Studios. The screenplay is being written by Filmfare award winner Ritesh Shah, who has also written the screenplay of Kahani, Pink, Airlift and Raid.

Shooting is scheduled to commence next month. Before the movie hits the OTT platforms and theatres, Netflix is screening a 50 minute documentary titled ‘Pehchan’ on September 7 on how Oberoi made it big after he left home in his youth with just Rs 350 in his pocket.
