In a recent interview, Vidya Balan revealed that she would like to play Indira Gandhi on the silver screen and soon after, the actress was approached by film director Manish Gupta for the biopic on former PM.

However, the actress hasn’t yet given her nod even though she liked the script. Filmmaker Manish confirmed the reports by saying, “She has liked the script, but hasn’t given a go-ahead yet. Given that the film is on Indira Gandhi, there are precautions needed to be taken before we start.”

Before starting or moving forward with the film, Manish needs to get the permission from the Gandhi family and the director is working on it.The biopic is a sensitive issue, so getting the permission from the family is very necessary.

Unlike most of the Bollywood films, biopic on Indira Gandhi will not have any peppy songs or item numbers or any typical Bollywood song at all. Apart from the main lead, Indira, there will also be characters for Indira Gandhi’s sons Rajeev Gandhi and Sanjay Gandhi in the film and we wonder which actor will play which role! When asked who we will get to see in the said two roles, the director of the film confessed that he hasn’t yet approached anyone else than Vidya Balan. Manish said that the main focus of the film is Indira and only her, so the rest of the characters in the film will be supporting characters and the film will not have any other A-lister. Well, we are certainly looking forward for more updates on the project.
