Bollywood actor John Abraham will be co-producing the biopic on Revathi Roy, the much-acclaimed social entrepreneur who started Asia's first all-women taxi service "Hey Deedee" and the first all-women last-mile delivery service.
John's JA Entertainment, Grewal's Red Ice Films and Anil Bohra's Vyka Entertainment are joining hands to co-produce Roy's biopic. The film, which is currently in the pre-production stage, will be directed by Robbie Grewal.
The story of the film has been adapted from the book "Who is Revathi Roy" by Swati Lodha.
Early in her enterprise, Roy had decided that her staff would consist only of women who were below the poverty line. Today Roy, who was in the list of Fortune India's most powerful women in 2019, has trained and empowered many such women enabling them and their families to live a life of dignity and financial independence.
Other details related to the cast are still under wraps.
