Kriti Sanon who is currently basking in the success of her latest release Mimi, recently expressed her desire to do biopics of two of Indian cinema’s legendary actresses Madhubala and Meena Kumari while speaking with a leading tabloid.
That’s not all- Kriti also happens to be one of the busiest actresses with several releases lined up. Now, in a recent interview, the actress has opened up about her interest to be a part of a biopic.
Talking to TOI, Kriti revealed that she wants to play Madhubala or Meena Kumari in their biopic, if it’s ever made. She said, “There are certain personalities in our film industry who have been iconic and whose lives I feel people don’t really know much about. But people should know about them. And apart from Madhubalaji, I would love to play Meena Kumariji in her biopic. Both were iconic heroines of their time and I personally too would love to learn more about them.”
Recently, there has also been talks of a Madhubala biopic and the late actress’ sister Madhur Bhushan had opened up about her interest to make a film on her life. Even Meera Kumari’s life might unfold on the screen soon and there were talks of a film on the actress’ life with Vidya Balan in the lead and Tigmanshu Dhulia on the director’s chair.
One also hears that a web series is being planned on Meena Kumari’s life. Well, we must say it would be quite interesting to watch Kriti pull off these roles on screen!
Currently, the actress is receiving some rave reviews for her portrayal of a surrogate mother in her last release Mimi. The Laxman Utekar directorial is a remake of the Marathi film Mala Aai Vhhaychy. She has some interesting projects in the pipeline which include Adipurush, Bachchan Pandey, Bhediya, Ganapath and Dinesh Vijan’s untitled film opposite Rajkummar Rao.
