The life of Anant Pai, creator of the comic series ‘Amar Chitra Katha’ around historical and mythological themes, will soon be translated into an audiovisual story based on the biography ‘Uncle Pai’ by Rajessh M. Iyer.

Children growing up in India from the 1970s to the 1990s had one common factor that united them: their beautiful association with Amar Chitra Katha. Growing up reading his creations was an essential rite of passage that no one missed. And all this fun, frenzy and madness was due to the pioneering vision of a man popularly known as Uncle Pai.

From a village in Karnataka, to Mumbai, Anant Pai’s journey and vision, which eventually touched countless lives of many generations, is as interesting as the books he has created.

Filled with little-known stories, Iyer’s “Uncle Pai” chronicles the journey of a remarkable man and his indomitable spirit, who helped millions across India get in touch with their cultural roots.

“Bringing the story of India’s beloved Uncle Pai to a wider audience through a movie or web series is a logical cinematic tribute to the man who introduced millions of Indians to their glorious narrative heritage,” Iyer said.

The production house, Almighty Motion Picture, has yet to confirm whether the material will be turned into a web series or a movie. Prabhleen Kaur said on her behalf, “It is a dream come true for me as I grew up reading ‘Amar Chitra Katha’. It’s more than a project, it’s something close to my heart, because in addition to entertainment, it was also a resource for us to expand our knowledge.”
