Last year, Rajkumar Hirani had met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi. At that time, while appreciating the reach cinema has, he had expressed how governments can make laws and policies but filmmakers can reach out to the hearts of the people and bring about social change more easily and effectively. Pondering over the thought for a while, Hirani came up with this special piece of art which will be centred around the learnings and life of 'Bapu'.

With the day here, now that the special tribute is out, it has surely gotten the fans excited... where this project is Rajkumar Hirani's and the entire film fraternity's tribute to 'Bapu'.
