Directed by Robbie Grewal, the biopic drama is in its pre-production stage which is an adaptation of the book ‘Who is Revathi Roy’ by Swati Lodha. The film will trace the journey of a free-spirited and dedicated Revathi Roy fighting all the odds to rise like a phoenix. The biopic will touch upon Revathi Roy’s entrepreneurial journey as she introduced Asia’s first all-women taxi service Hey Deedee and all women last-mile delivery service.
John, Anil and Robbie are very excited to work together on a woman-centric film that highlights the journey of social entrepreneur Ravthi Roy. In the very initial stages of her career, Roy had cleared mentioned that her staff would have an all-women staff comprising women living below the poverty line. Her immensely successful journey from riches to rags has been well-recognized by the world as she was on the list of Fortune India’s most powerful women in 2019. Revathi’s journey is a reflection of how a select few women gather the courage to fight against the odds and empower their likes for a better future in the patriarchal society.
Robbie Grewal and John Abraham had worked together to deliver ‘Romeo Akbar Walter’ in 2019. The action-drama was well-received by the audiences as John Abraham stepped into his most comfortable zone with an action film.
