Biopics never go out of fashion in Bollywood. Some or the other biopic is always in the making. While Ranbir Kapoor is working on Sanjay Dutt’s biopic and Shraddha Kapoor on Saina Nehwal’s, news is that Puja Bedi is all set to make a biopic on beauty baroness Shahnaz Husain and had approached Priyanka Chopra for the role. But due to unavailability of dates for the next two years, the project is now being considered by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who was the original choice for the film, says writer Kamlesh Pandey.
“Aishwarya was always our first choice. We want the tehzeeb and adab of the character to reflect. The vocabulary certainly could not be that of the Facebook and Twitter generation. Aishwarya is perfect, keeping in mind all these prerequisites,” said the writer.
He also went on to add, “She has immense potential in comparison to the opportunities that have come her way. Bollywood has been too preoccupied by Aishwarya Rai’s beauty to challenge the actor in her.”
