World’s Oldest Marathon Runner Fauja Singh To Be Subject Of Biopic From Indian Creative Trio
Exclusive: The life of the world’s oldest marathon runner, Fauja Singh, will be the subject of a biopic from a trio of established Indian creatives.

Omung Kumar B is directing the project, titled Fauja, and will produce alongside Kunal Shivdasani of Aleya Motion Magic, whose credits include the 2008 thriller Hijack, and Raaj Shaandilya, who previously wrote Bhoomi for Kumar B and also wrote and directed the 2019 Hindi comedy Dream Girl.

Fauja will chronicle how 108-year-old Fauja Singh, better known as the ‘Sikh Superman’, stunned the world by shattering a number of records in multiple age brackets as a marathon runner. Singh has completed the London marathon six times after making his debut there in 2000 at the age of 89, and has since finished marathons in Toronto, New York and more cities.

The screenplay is being adapted from the book Turbaned Tornado written by Khushwant Singh and published by Rupa Publications.
