We can now add 'Daya Bai' in the list of upcoming films. Based on the life of a social activist, the film is directed by Sree Varun and will see Bidita Bag, whose breakout role was in 'Babumoshai Bandookbaaz' (2017), play the titular character. A Hindi biopic based on Kerala-born social activist, Daya Bai is expected to hit the big screen soon. The makers today released the new poster of movie stating that very soon the film will hit the big screen.

Born in 1940 in Kerala as Mercy Mathew, Daya Bai is a social activist who has been working for the betterment of the tribal community in India, especially in central India.

The last schedule of 'Daya Bai' recently wrapped up in Madhya Pradesh. Shedding more light on the film, an official statement from the makers said, “Daya Bai will portray how Mercy Mathew, a Malayali, transformed herself into Daya Bai, a social activist. Her work for the betterment of the tribal people of Madhya Pradesh will also be depicted. While a few portions are shot in Kerala, there are sequences in Madhya Pradesh also.”

The biopic has also made its way to some international film festivals such as Big Apple Film Festival, New York and By Design Film Festival, Washington.
