Binge Watch News and India Today report the story of India’s first spymaster will be coming to screens of the world’s second most populous nation.
The Research and Analysis Wing has been in the news because of a recent border skirmish between India and China. Kao was a remarkable character who made his reputation in a previous war between India and China. One biographer dubbed him called him “The Gentleman Spymaster.”
This series will based on another book about Kao called, “Mission R&AW.”
RK Yadav said, “My book gives an insight into the professional acumen of Mr Kao and how RAW came into inception. Besides his many achievements, Kao was also monitoring China during the 1962 war when he was working as then-Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru’s PS (personal security chief).”
Yadav further added that apart from providing a detailed account of the little-known journey of Kao, his book also chronicles the 1962 war with China and the intelligence-gathering techniques adopted by RAW.
“Kao told me that in November 1962, the US had proposed to Jawaharlal Nehru a nuclear action against China, if the conflict escalated. Thereafter Nehru rejected the Chinese proposal of a summit with them and demanded Chinese withdrawal beyond LAC which China had to concede to. The disintegration of Pakistan in 1971 was a joint strategy of Kao and late Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw,” added Kao.
The yet-to-be-titled series will be bankrolled by Bohra Bros, who have reportedly produced more than 36 movies, including Shahid and Gangs of Wasseypur.
Sunil Bohra of Bohra Bros told India News that his team has been working on the Kao series for the last two years.
“To document the story of RN Kao is by far my life’s most challenging and important project. Our team has been working on this project for the past two years. The book authored by Mr Yadav gives an elaborate account of the founder and India’s foremost intelligence agency,” Bohra said.
