A film on the life of 25-year-old cyber security expert Trishneet Arora is in the works and expected to go on floors in mid-2019. Producer Sunil Bohra, with his banner Bohra Bros, has acquired the rights to Arora’s story to adapt for the big screen.

The young man, who dropped out of school, is now the CEO of his company, TAC Security Solutions. After setting up his corporation at 19, he has expanded his offices to four cities in India and one in Dubai. Arora began helping other companies as an ethical hacker. His client list includes Relainace, the police forces in Punjab and Gujarat, and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

Arora has been working with Bohra and the screenplay writers for over a year on the biopic. “It’s for the producer to decide if he wants to fictionalise some incidents in my life. I don’t mind them giving my story a cinematic touch as I have full confidence that they will present it in a way that inspires the youth,” Arora said.

The young man from Punjab said he was initially sceptical of his life being turned into a film but decided to look at the larger picture and gave his okay to the biopic.

“Fame is a big responsibility and prompts me to work harder. A leader is not one who creates the part," Arora added.

While casting for the lead has not been finalised yet, producer Bohra has an A-list star in mind for the role.
