According to the temple trust, Bachchan has been requested to lend his voice to narrate the story and a committee has been set up to oversee the film, from script to the final product. The members of the committee include Prasoon Joshi, writer and chairman of the film censor board. Film director Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi, writer Yatindra Mishra and Sachidanand Joshi, secretary of the Indira Gandhi National Centre for Arts, too, are on the committee. The film could be shown on Doordarshan and will encapsulate the centuries-long history of Ram Janmabhoomi and the construction process of the Ram Temple, News18 reported.

Dwivedi had directed the 1991 television serial, Chanakya, in which he played the role of the political strategist Chanakya. He has recently directed the Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘Samrat Prithviraj’, on the life of Prithviraj Chauhan.

The trust said the temple work is on in full progress and 20% work on the ground floor has been completed.
