The producer of the movie Ronnie Lahiri talked about the movie and said, “They have just started the work on it, and is currently in pre-production stage. We have to work a lot on this movie.” He also talked about his association with John and Sircar in the movie, Vicky Donor and Madras Cafe. When asked about John's relevance (in the lead role) in the movie, “John is an avid football player and supporter, and the script needs someone who knows about football, so John is apt for the role,” said Lahiri.
Mohun Bagan's win is an amazing story, similar to real 'Lagaan'. But very few of us know about the entire story behind it, so the well known director Shoojit Sircar is coming up with a movie along with John Abraham on this historic event. The script of the movie is written by Soumik Sen, who made his debut with 'Gulaab Gang' starring Madhuri Dixit-Nene and Juhi Chawla. The trio (Shoojit Sircar, Soumik Sen and John Abraham) are part of the Bengali Club in Bollywood.
Meanwhile, a film in Bengal has already paid a tribute to this historic event, and the movie was named 'Egaro.' It was a small budget movie with a handful of young actors, but still, the film won critical appreciation.
