What more do we know about Srikanth Bolla?

SRI, written by Jagdeep Sidhu and Sumit Purohit and filmed by Pratham Mehta, is a biopic of industrialist Srikanth Bolla, who refused to let his visual impairment prevent him from founding Bollant Industries. Srikanth was born to poor, uneducated parents in a small village in Arunachal Pradesh. Srikanth was born visually impaired and faced numerous challenges throughout his life. He had to fight his way through school, too.

After Class 10, Srikanth Bolla faced a significant challenge in fighting a lengthy legal battle with the state to pursue a science education. Having said that, Bolla always had bigger dreams, and he not only passed his secondary and senior secondary exams with flying colours, but he also became the first international blind student to study at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the United States.
