Yesterday, we reported a story about filmmaker Boney Kapoor registering three titles – Sri, Sridevi and Sri Ma’am – with the Indian Motion Picture Producers’ Association (IMPPA) for a documentary on his late wife and veteran Bollywood star, Sridevi, who left for her heavenly abode on 24th February this year.
Confirming the news, Kapoor told a popular tabloid, “I have registered three titles, but I cannot categorically reveal what they are. It’s too premature to talk about it,” he said.
When asked if he wants to make a biopic or documentary on the seasoned actress, he said, “There are plans to make a film, but I can’t tell you whether it will be a biopic or documentary. I don’t see the need to rush into anything. Whenever there is any further development, everyone will come to know about it.”
However, if a close source is to be believed, the filmmaker has already started work on the project which might go to sets in 2019. “Boney is working with a renowned writer on the script. Besides Sridevi’s film journey, her personal life, including her marriage to Boney, their kids and how she took a sabbatical, will also form an integral part of the narrative. Boney sir wants the movie to roll by next year.”
Sridevi, who starred in over 300 films across various Indian languages, was found dead in a Dubai Hotel on 24th February 2018. Her post-mortem report revealed she died of accidental drowning in a bathtub. The diva last appeared in Ravi Udyawar’s revenge drama ‘Mom’ (2017) for which she was conferred the National Film Award for Best Actress posthumously.
