Well the title of the film is yet to be finalized. The film is a sports drama based on the UP-based octogenarian sharpshooters Chandro and Prakashi Tomar and the film is being directed by debutante director Tushar Hiranandani.
Chandro, 87, and Prakashi, 82, are from Uttar Pradesh’s Johri village and reportedly took up sharpshooting in their 50s. Chandro, who is fondly called as shooter ‘dadi’ is among the world’s oldest female sharpshooters.
