Krishna Shah plans to sell script of Baiju-The Gypsy

Krishna Shah, Hollywood writer, director and producer is putting his long talked of project Baiju- The Gypsy on the boards again. Baiju- The Gypsy is a period fiction story set during the Mogul era of 16th Century. On one level, it is a story of contest - a contest between two great singers of the era. Baiju Bawara, a young gypsy and the singer from the soul and Miya Tansen, one of the nine jewels of Akbar's court.

The script is touted to be a visual treat filled with special effects. The legends of classical Indian music may or may not bear the scrutiny of science today, but it was widely believed that Tansen could start a fire with his singing of Raga Deepak, and Baiju could bring down rain by his improvised rendition of the Malhar chant.

Shah shelved plans to produce Baiju-The Gypsy last year to work full time on his epic biopic Mother: The Indira Gandhi Story.

Apparently, A.R. Rahman in an interview once said that Krishna Shah' Baiju-The Gypsy was one of the most cherished scripts he had read and was disappointed when it was put on hold. "In fact, Rahman had insisted on me contacting Aamir for the role of Baiju. Even offered to call him. Somehow, things did not work out," says Shah.

Shah now wants to sell the script to a director passionate enough to see this story through to the screen.
