Biopic’s are dominating the Hindi film industry these days, and there is no sign it’s going to slow down any time soon. Emraan Hashmi who is currently busy with his upcoming film Cheat India has signed new project, this film is title ‘Father’s Day’ and will be an “emotional” father-son story.

This film will be based on the life of Suryakant Bhande Patil, who has solved 120 child kidnapping cases for free. The Pune-based civil engineer has been collaborating closely with cops, not just in Pune but also in Mumbai, to trace missing children and has even set up a website dedicated to them. He started his detective agency, Spy Sanket, in 1999 after an incident changed the direction of his life.

The script will be based on the book Drishyam Adrishyam by author Praful Shah. This film will be directed by debutant Shantanu Baagchi, who has over 300 ad films to his credit, with screenplay and dialogue by Ritesh Shah, who penned Airlift, Pink and Raid, the film will be jointly produced by Emraan, Priya Gupta and Kalpana Udyawar.

Talking about the film, Emraan said, “Suryakantji’s story is very heartbreaking but greatly inspiring. It’s rare to find a person who has dedicated his whole life to helping find kidnapped children of others that too for free. I am extremely proud to be playing him in the film.”

“This one will make for a thrilling and emotional film as it deals with the important subject of child safety which has been touched upon internationally in films like the Oscarnominated 2013 thriller, Prisoners, but that was pure fiction. In Hindi cinema we have dealt with it perfunctorily. What makes it even more inspiring is that we are dealing with facts here,” Priya Said. “Emraan loved the script and as soon as the narration ended, gave his nod to the film. You will see him cry and he will make you cry too,” she promises.
