After the huge success of Milan Luthria’s ‘The Dirty Picture’ (2011) being based on the late actress Silk Smita, it had been reported that film maker Vikram Sandhu had been thinking about making a biographical film based on the late Divya Bharti.
It has now been reported that the film is definitely in the pipeline, as actor Vije Bhatia has been cast to play the role based on the producer and Bharti’s husband Sajid Nadiadwala. NDTV reported Bhatia explaining, “My character in the film is that of a struggling producer who falls in love with a new actress. They get married and soon his wife accidentally meets her end.��Everyone blames him for her death.”��Sandhu is currently in the process of��taking auditions in search for a lead female role.
Bharti was at the peak of her career and she had become one of Bollywood’s most sought after actresses until her sudden death in April 1993, caused by her falling from her high floored apartment. To this day, the cause of her death is still a mystery.
