The actor is currently prepping for the role. Bollywood Hungama reached out to Jackie Shroff, who confirmed his association with the project as well.
The Slow Joe biopic will be helmed by Why Cheat India. The co-production between India, France, and Singapore, will be bankrolled by Indian origin Singaporean producer Shreyashi Sen under her Darpan Global banner. The plan is to begin filming later this year in locations namely Paris, Mumbai, Goa, and Lyon in France. It will be made in English, French, and Konkani languages.
Slow Joe was born on March 22, 1943, in Bombay. In love with freedom, he led the life of a wandering poet for many years, from Delhi to the island of Choaro, and lived on the margins of society.
