After the humongous success of Sanjay Dutt’s biopic ‘Sanju’, which is running to packed houses all across the country ever since its release on 29th June, the audience may get to see another interesting biopic on another iconic star of Bollywood. Any guesses who we are talking about? Well, we are talking about the evergreen beauty of Bollywood, Madhubala. Madhubala’s younger sister Madhur Brij Bhushan has confirmed that a biopic on the late actress is in the works. Not revealing about the upcoming project or the cast, Bhushan said that the movie will be bankrolled by her “dear friends”.
“I am going in for a biopic on my sister, which will be produced by my very dear friends, very soon. It’s my humble request to all the well-wishers of Madhubala and whosoever is connected with Bollywood or elsewhere to please not attempt a biopic or anything else based on my sister’s life without my permission,” she said in a statement.
Adding further, she said, “The details will be known to her fans and to all concerned when the right time comes. So, please try to avoid any kind of unpleasant situation.”
While we have seen a series of biopics on sportsmen, politicians, and gangsters, biopics on Bollywood personalities have not been made that frequently in the industry. But it seems like that after the howling success of the Rajkumar Hirani directorial ‘Sanju’, the trend is going to gain momentum in Hindi cinema.
After the official announcement of the biopic on Madhubala, now we are waiting to know the name of the actress who is going to play the magnetic star on celluloid. If you have any suggestions, do write in the comment section below.
