Shekhar Kapur and Julia Roberts team up
To go by instincts and to make movies like Mr India, Bandit Queen and Hollywood film Elizabeth, director Shekhar Kapur has shown his immense caliber in directing novel and unusual subjects. Now the director is planning a biopic on the life of English explorer George Mallory. And the movie is likely to be produced by the Hollywood actress Julia Roberts.
What a team! However, the actress might not join the cast but reports name her as one of the producers with her Red Om production house. The biopic is titled ‘Mallory’ and will narrate the explorer’s attempts to climb the world’s tallest peak Mt. Everest and how his ambition affected his marital life.
Mallory died in the year 1924 when he along with his friend were just 800 feet from reaching the summit. Within the sniffing distance of conquering the peak the clouds engulfed them, and the intrepid climbers disappeared and couldn’t be traced.
Like Mallory’s undaunted spirit, Shekhar too is determined to make this film
