Camphor Cinema’, independent film Production Company and producers of English- Tamil biopic ‘Ramanujan’ signs on with Von Ryans Entertainment for the international distribution of English film ‘Ramanujan’. This is the first time an Indian produced English film is being taken to Hollywood. The film is likely to be unveiled at one of the most awaited international film festivals ‘The Toronto International Film Festival’ that runs from September 4 to 14, 2014.
The English film Ramanujan is a tribute to the unsung hero Srinivasa Ramanujan and tracks the journey of the ace mathematician from Kumbakonam to Cambridge- his struggle to overcome the supercilious indifference of his peers and the Indian Academia and how his self-belief and Prof. Hardy’s help lead him to become a Fellow of the Royal Society.
The film stars step- nephew of Rekha and the grandson of the legendary couple Gemini Ganesan and Savitri, Abhinay Vaddi, in the role of Ramanujan. It also stars Bhama, Suhasini Maniratnam wife of the renowned director Mani Ratnam, and British stage and screen actor Kevin McGowan.
