Bollywood filmmaker Prakash Jha is all set to direct a multilingual web series on the life of the 9th Prime Minister of India, PV Narasimha Rao who served as Indian PM from 21 June 1991 to 16 May 1996
The Series will be named “Half Lion”, which is based on the book “How Lion: How P.V. Narasimha Rao Transformed India”.
The book is written by Vinay Sitapati, who is an Assistant Professor at Ashoka University, Sonipat, Haryana.
Jha on Monday, while making the announcement of the series, told the media that rarely a small percentage of this generation is aware of the reforms Narasimha Rao had brought for our country.
He said that Rao was the politician who never took credit for any economic reform rather gave its credit to former PM Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, Dr. Manmohan Singh, the then Finance Minister, Rajeev Gandhi, and Indian National Congress (INC) who had been ruling the country since post-independence.
He told the media that Rao had only one aim and that was to move the country forward. And he himself remained a shadow.
He further said that PV Narasimha Rao was the man who changed India with Economic Reforms, and made India independent economically, for which we had struggled for almost 45 years
He said that this web series will put his work into the spotlight.
