Vidya Balan and Indira Gandhi
Vidya Balan has always been keen to essay the character of late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on screen. Yesterday, she took the first step towards fulfilling her dream. Vids and producer hubby Siddharth Roy Kapur have acquired the rights to Sagarika Ghose’s book, Indira - India’s Most Powerful Prime Minister, on which the project will be based.
Yesterday, Ghose took to Twitter to announce the deal.
Just signed the contract for movie rights for my book "Indira, India's Most Powerful PM" with @vidya_balan and @roykapurfilms! Utterly elated!! Look fwd to seeing INDIRA on screen! @juggernautbooks #IndiraTheMovie— Sagarika Ghose (@sagarikaghose) January 10, 2018
Balan released a statement saying, “I am happy to have acquired the rights. I haven’t decided yet whether it should be made into a film or a web series, but that will take a while anyway.” Known for her acting chops, we can’t wait to see Vids bring alive the country’s most powerful and enigmatic PM.
