After producing films such as The Accidental Prime Minister, Gangs of Wasseypur and Shahid, producer Sunil Bohra has acquired the rights of historian Hindol Sengupta's 'The Modern Monk: What Vivekananda Means To Us Today'. The book is published by Penguin India.The producer will soon be making a film on the same.

Talking about the thought process behind the inception of the project, Sunil says, "India has a great heritage and I want to make films on some of the people like Swami Vivekananda and Sardar Patel who have built this heritage. It"s my tribute to our country and Sri Narendra Modi."

The book has achieved critical acclaim and is touted to be the best explanation of Swami Vivekananada's relevance to our life and times. In fact, Dr Kapil Kapoor, Editor-in-Chief, Encyclopaedia of Hinduism called it "A Must Read".

Hindol is also looking forward to working with Sunil. "More than perhaps any other person in the last 200 years, Swami Vivekananda spoke most passionately of a vision of a renewed, reinvigorated Indian civilization which serves as a beacon of peace and prosperity to the world. I wrote The Modern Monk to explain in the most contemporary language the importance of Vivekananda's vision for the past, present and future of India and I am delighted to partner with Sunil Bohra, a visionary in the world of cinema, in bringing this story to millions of people," he says.

The work on the project has begun and the writing is in process.
