Kalpana Lajmi is apparently looking for a co-writer to help her with the script of the Bhupen Hazarika biopic. Post that, she plans to go looking for funds and then approach actors for the project.

“I am about to finish work on the screenplay of the biopic, and I am now looking for a co-writer to help me write the film. Mahesh Bhatt will be supervising all creative aspects of the film,” she says.
The filmmaker adds that finding a co-writer is not something is worried about. “I can manage that. But once it is taken care of, I will be approaching people for funds and only then will I decide on the cast,” says Lajmi, who is also working on a feature film with Vinta Nanda.
Interestingly, the biopic — that chronicles the life of the legendary musician Bhupen Hazarika — is being produced by Pooja Bhatt, and it may also see the actress-filmmaker essay the role of Lajmi.
