Producer Konda Krishnam Raju is all set to venture into India's first film on Jesus Christ to be shot in the Holy Land. The two-hour-15-min biopic will be directed by Singeetham Srinivasa Rao. The film is being made under the banner of Aditya Productions.

To be made at a whopping amount of $ 30 million, the film will be one of India's highest budgeted. According to the director, the film with an all-Indian cast of child actors will be narrated in four languages. South Indian star Pawan Kalyan will narrate the Telugu and Malayalam versions.

The film will focus on the childhood of Jesus, a contrast with other movies that depict the later years. "This is the first presentation of this type in Bollywood history," Raju said. The film has been green signaled by the authorities in Israel to film in Bethlehem and Jericho.

American makeup artiste Christien Tinsley will use special techniques to make the actors appear older. The filmmakers said they chose him because of his work in THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST that earned him an Oscar nomination.

The film that gets rolling in October will be released next year.
