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.

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.
