After passing from the hands of Kangana Ranaut and Priyanka Chopra, looks like the Meena Kumari biopic will finally find a leading lady to play the yesteryear actor in the film. While Kangana was very keen on doing the film but Kumari’s brother was against the idea, Priyanka didn’t supposedly have dates.
What seems to be Ranaut and Chopra’s loss is Balan’s gain. A source recently told a leading daily, “Vidya has been offered the biopic now. The makers feel she can perfectly portray the actress on screen and hence approached her for the biopic.”
In an interview in January, Balan had stated that she had been offered the Meena Kumari biopic earlier. Here is what she said, “I was offered a biopic on Meena Kumari, but it was offered soon after ‘Dirty Picture’, so I didn’t want to do it at that time. But she is definitely someone who fascinates me and I would love to play her or Madhubala or Nargis. They all were interesting personalities.”
While Vidya has just wrapped up Tumhari Sulu, she is reading more scripts and this is just one of them. Do you think Vidya will be able to do justice to Meena Kumari? Let us know in the comments below!
