It feels like Biopic is in Trend, after a great success of Sanju and Soorma another biopic is announced in our city and this biopic is going to be made on “Vashishth Narayan”, who is not only pride of Bihar but the whole nation.

Vashishtha Narayan needs no introduction, he is a reckoned mathematician and an unsung hero too. He was born on 2nd April 1942 in Basantpur village of Bhojpur District, Bihar. Where most of us try hard to get USA visa, go and work there, Vashishtha Narayan is a person who came back in 1971 to teach at IIT Kanpur. Vashishtha Narayan was first spotted by John Kelley who was a visiting professor at Patna Science college. Later he invited him to Berkeley for his research. A popular story about Vashishtha Narayan serving in NASA is, during APOLLO mission computers failed for few moments there and Vashishtha Narayan started counting manually, when the computers were fixed his calculations were verified and the result was accurate. He completed his three-year graduation programme in the US in just one year. The world knows him as he challenged Einstien’s E=mc2 (Theory Of Relativity).  His work on Cyclic Vector Micro Theory made him popular in the entire world.

He brought such glory to India, but right now is suffering from schizophrenia and forced to live a life of adversities and hardships and neither state nor central government has done anything for him.

But now the news is, Prakash Jha, one more name of talent from Bihar, who is a renowned director known for his socio-political dramas, will direct a biopic on Vashishtha Narayan, whom he consideres “Nation’s Treasure”.

Excited to be the part of the film, the director said to a daily news channel – Dr. Vashishtha Narayan Singh, the brilliant mathematician from Bihar is our national treasure. His life is so inspiring, I would love to direct a biopic on him”.

This film is being produced by Vinay Sinha and his daughter Priti Sinha.

Vinay Said – “I have been reading about Vashishtha Narayan’s story since long, and his life is full of highs and lows and we are now all set to produce a film on him”.

Priti added – “Our main motive behind this movie is to make people know about this man’s life who brought so much glory to our country”.

After a biopic on Anand Kumar, we are eagerly waiting for this movie to release and we are excited to know, who will be acting in this movie and playing the role of Vashishtha Narayan.

“Patna Page 3 wishes all the very best to the entire team and we hope this movie brings some change in the life of Vashishtha Narayan”.

I'm an avid reader, a foodie, and a movie buff; who is passionate about the positivity around us. I love to dream and convert those dreams into words. At one moment I'm inside a shell and the very next moment I'm the ferocious one. Dynamism is my forte. Apart from being a dreamer, I'm also a woman with a beating heart and a curious mind questioning traditional social norms. I'm a rebel at one moment and just opposite at the very next moment. My fuel is the smile of my son, the happiness of my family, and lots of coffee. I'm also not ashamed of spending money on buying books and to fill my (always empty) stomach.
