With the coronavirus pandemic putting various industries on hold, like many other projects Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s forthcoming Binodini Dasi biopic has been delayed.
Pradeep Sarkar opened up about the delay and trouble signing up other cast members for the film. He was cited in Filmfare saying, “The writing is in progress. While Aishwarya has given her nod, I have not approached other actors because I am waiting for the crisis to abate. I hope the vaccine is developed by March so we can start shooting.”
The film will depict the life of Dasi, a courtesan who became a famous theatrical actress in the 1800’s.
Rai Bachchan who, along with her husband Abhishek Bachchan and father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan tested positive for coronavirus, has made a full recovery from the virus.
