If the sources are to be believed then Mahesh, will be the creative consultant to a film being produced by Irfan Izhar. The film in question is based on Chandrashekhar Prasad, the student leader from Jawaharlal Nehru University, and an activist, who was shot dead in 1997 while addressing a gathering in Siwan, Bihar. Bhatt who, has already begun casting for the said film, has finalised on Imran Zahid to play the character of Chandrashekhar in the film.
Producer Irfan Izhar is an NRI and an alumnus of Aligarh Muslim University, who is currently based in Dubai. Bhatt, who for sometime now has been vociferously talking about making meaningful cinema, will now be engaged in giving much importance to real life heroes with films.
