Meena Kumari biopic in the pipeline

It seems to be the season of biopics in Bollywood. After news of the Priyanka Chopra biopic and then a film to be made on Sanjay Dutt۪s life, another one also seems to be on the cards. Legendary actress Meena Kumari۪s step son, Tajdar Amrohi, is all set to make a biopic on her life in an attempt to rid rumours that have circulated over the years.

My baba (Kamal Amrohi) was not the villain in chhoti ammi۪s life. It۪s said that he deprived her of motherhood but truth is that she had conceived twice and both times had aborted the baby. This is just one of the many things I will have to weave into the screenplay to bring out their real love story,۝ Amrohi told Mumbai Mirror, while confirming his plans to make the film.

Amrohi also stated that he will be casting newcomers for the lead roles. Shooting for the film is expected to start in the next couple of months.
