Ashwini Iyer Tiwari has reportedly begun her research for her film on the love story of Narayana Murthy and wife Sudha Murthy, who first met in Pune.

Filmmaker couple Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and Nitesh Tiwari have joined hands for a film based on the lives of Infosys co-founder N R Narayana Murthy and his wife Sudha Murthy.

The film will also be produced by Mahaveer Jain, a statement issued by the makers said.

 A Mumbai Mirror report claimed the film will be jointly produced by Mahaveer Jain, Ashwiny and her filmmaker husband Nitesh Tiwari.

“She has already started researching Indian IT’s first couple because she wants to have all the facts right before she dives into this inspiring story. The film is expected to roll next year. Sanjay Tripathy (writer-director) came up with the idea and scripting will begin soon,” a source informed the tabloid.

As per a ScoopWhoop report, Narayana was an introvert and Sudha a bold, ambitious computer scientist. Both met in Pune.While proposing marriage to Sudha, Narayana reportedly told her at a dinner date, “I want to tell you something. I knew this was it. It was coming. He said, I am 5’4” tall. I come from a lower middle-class family. I can never become rich. You are beautiful, bright, intelligent and you can get anyone you want. But will you marry me?”

Ashwini, whose credits include films such as "Nil Battey Sannata" and "Bareilly Ki Barfi", will direct the new project after her "Panga".

The story idea and concept was developed by writer Sanjay Tripathy. The film will chronicle the inspiring journey of Murthys and their contribution to the nation.
