In Bollywood where almost every release seems to be a superhero film with larger than life action stars doing next to impossible stunts, the audience still appreciates a true blue superhero film. Now we hear that filmmaker Vikramaditya Motwane is all set to collaborate with comic book legend Stan Lee to develop an Indian superhero film.
In fact Motwane will be helming a live-action film that will feature Chakra, an Indian superhero created by Stan Lee. Commenting on the same, a source close to the filmmaker says that Vikramaditya is currently working on the screenplay of the film with Lee and Sharad Devarajan, who is the creative partner on the project. Further adding, the source says that the film will feature an older version of the character in his twenties, set against the backdrop of Mumbai.
While Motwane is obviously elated at bringing a character developed by Lee to life, he states that apart from being an honour and delight to be making the film, he and his team are pretty excited with the project. As for the character Chakra was originally featured in a kids’ animation film on a cartoon channel in India two years ago.
