After a huge success of Tumhari Sulu, Vidya Balan is all set to play the role of Indira Gandhi, India’s first and only woman prime minister till date.
Vidya had said that it was her long cherished dream to portray Gandhi on screen.
“I am happy to have acquired the rights to Sagarika Ghose’s ‘Indira’ because I have always wanted to play Indira Gandhi. I haven’t decided yet whether it should be a film or a web series, but that will take a while anyway.”
Sagarika Ghose took to Facebook to share her excitement. She wrote:
“Elated to announce that I just signed the contract for the movie rights of my book ‘Indira: India’s Most Powerful Prime Minister’ with Vidya Balan and Roy Kapur Productions. Most excited to see ‘Indira’ on screen!”
It will be interesting to see Vidya play Indira Gandhi’s role onscreen. Right?
