Filmmaker Sandeep Singh has decided to drop his film project on Tipu Sultan after facing criticism following the announcement. Taking to Twitter, he stated that the film on Hazrat Tipu Sultan will not be made.

In light of the situation, Sandeep made a heartfelt request to his “fellow brothers and sisters” to refrain from threatening or abusing him, his family, and his friends. He offered a sincere apology if anyone’s religious sentiments were unintentionally hurt, expressing his firm belief in respecting all beliefs and promoting unity among Indians.

When the film was initially announced, a video surfaced making claims about Tipu Sultan’s rule, including the destruction of temples and churches, forced conversions, and other alleged atrocities.

Sandeep had aimed to expose what he referred to as Tipu Sultan’s dark side, stating that history textbooks portrayed him as a braveheart, but he wanted to shed light on the king’s malevolent aspects for future generations.

Scheduled for release in multiple languages, including Hindi, Kannada, Telugu, Tamil, and Malayalam, the film was to be directed by Pawan Sharma, who sought to challenge the traditional portrayal of Tipu Sultan.

Moving on from this project, Sandeep Singh is currently focused on his new endeavour, a biopic on former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee titled Main Atal Hoon, featuring Pankaj Tripathi in the lead role.
