Bollywood actor John Abraham on Tuesday announced his next production, a biographical drama film based on the life of well-known social entrepreneur Revathi Roy.

The actor and producer is going to get back with the project through his banner JA Entertainment, alongside Robbie Grewal’s Red Ice Films and Anil Bohra’s Vyka Entertainment.

Robbie had previously worked with John Abraham on 2019’s spy thriller “RAW”, is going to helm the film which will chronicle the story of Roy, who started India’s only last-mile delivery company that employs only women as delivery agents.

“I am very happy that we are producing this very upbeat story that combines the best of entrepreneurial twists with an extremely dramatic personal life. Revathi’s journey is that of a vivacious, funny, full of life, spirited woman, who despite all odds has risen like a phoenix and has been continuously working towards empowering underprivileged women,” John said in a statement.

Robbie said it is an honour to be able to tell the story of such an heroic and brave woman.

“Revathi’s life is full of crests and troughs and dramatic twists and turns. We usually see stories about how people rise from rags to riches; Revathi went from riches to rags to a revolution,” Robbie said.

The film revolves around the adapted version of the book ‘Who is Revathi Roy’ by Swati Lodha. Revathi said she is very happy that John, Robbie and Anil will have come together to tell a story, which she believes is not just her own but of every woman, who was given a chance.

“Women are born fighters and an opportunity given to them never goes waste. All we need to provide is an ecosystem for them to flourish. In a small way, that is what my team and I have done,” Revathi, who featured in the list of Fortune India’s most powerful women in 2019, said.

Produced by JA Entertainment, Red Ice Films & Vyka Entertainment, the film is currently in pre-production stage.
