The  trend of making biopics in Bollywood is rising high. With some successful movies like Mary Kom, Sanju, Neerja, Dangal and MS Dhoni among others in the last couple of years, the Bollywood is all set for another biopic titled “Murthy” based on the life of Infosys co-founder N.R Narayana Murthy and his wife Sudha Murthy.

Director Ashwini Iyer Tiwari made the announcement on Instagram on Tuesday. She shared a black and white photo of herself with Sudha Murthy saying she does not have a photo with Mr Narayan Murthy but “spent hours chatting with Sudha Maa.”

Two opposite personalities. I don’t have a picture with Mr Narayan Murthy. But spent hours chatting with Sudha Maa – that’s what i call her now ❤️ Been working for almost 21 years now. Started off with designing events and logos while studying in art school. I needed the money to feed my art supplies and education. Then joined as a art trainee at Leo Burnett. Spent 16 years in advertising and marketing with the most amazing people who are my dearest friends too. Left advertising in 2015 to an unknown world of Bollywood only for the passion of telling stories. #NilBatteySannata #Ammakanakku #BareillykiBarfi happened. #Panga is an important story that needs to be told. I thank @roo_cha for making this happen. Panga has been an enriching experience with talented Kangana @team_kangana_ranaut , @jassie.gill @therichachadha @neena_gupta which i and @foxstarhindi are eager to share on 24 Jan 2020 😁 i keep dreaming that eventually I would want to lead a life like Narayan Murthy & Sudha Murthy. The life choices. Their honest life with integrity is my biggest inspiration. I am filled with humble gratitude to make Murthy. They have trusted me with their iconic story and i can only pray that I keep up to their expectations. This is more than a film.This is life. Thank-you Mahaveer ji for being the binding force. The writers are back in action @bawlekiduniya @pglens @niteshtiwari22 lets get away to another beautiful place to write. @earthskynotes #earthskypictures #sundial

Ashwini left the world of advertising in 2015 “to an unknown world of Bollywood only for the passion of telling stories. #NilBatteySannata #Ammakanakku #BareillykiBarfi happened.” She says Panga is an important story that needs to be told and the film has been an enriching experience with Kangana Ranaut.

I am filled with humble gratitude to make Murthy. They have trusted me with their iconic story and i can only pray that I keep up to their expectations. This is more than a film.
