Deepika Padukone declines Nati Binodini biopic?

Deepika Padukone has been receiving much praise for her portrayal as acid attack survivor Malti in ‘Chhapaak’ which released this month. However, it seems the actress has turned down a biopic on Nati Binodini.

Filmfare reports that Padukone was approached by Pradeep Sarkar who is making the film, which follows the woman’s life – beginning from when she was born in prostitution. However, it seems the actress wasn’t interested in such a project at this time. A source revealed, “The makers met Deepika a couple of months ago to give her a story narration. She liked the story and agreed to read the script. But then she got busy with Chhapaak promotions and kept them hanging in limbo saying that she would get back to them. Finally, her team reverted after more than a month saying that she couldn’t do the movie as she wanted to do light-hearted subjects and not heavy or serious movies, which would consume her emotionally”.

News has it that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has now been approached for the role.
