News has it that Nikkhil Dwivedi has bought the rights to Bilal Siddiqui’s book ‘The Stardust Affair’. It’s thought he will be producing a film adaptation, and the story is loosely based on the life of Mamta Kulkarni.
“Nikkhil has acquired the rights to Bilal Siddiqui’s book, The Stardust Affair which is loosely based on the tumultuous and eventful life of Mamta Kulkarni. Her life and journey is something that almost everyone is aware of, right from being a Bollywood star to becoming a ‘godmother’ to allegedly being Dawood Ibrahim’s girlfriend, Mamta Kulkarni has always been in the headlines. The book will serve as the base for Nikhil’s next production and the producer will release an official announcement once all the formalities are complete,” said a source, according to Pinkvilla.
Kulkarni was known for her roles in ‘Krantiveer’ (1994) and ‘Karan Arjun’ (1995), having made her debut with Saif Ali Khan in ‘Aashik Awara’ in 1993. When Kulkarni disappeared from the limelight, it’s thought she settled in Kenya but her name was heard once more not long ago, in relation to a drug racket.
