Pradeep Sarkar who launched Vidya Balan in his film ‘Parineeta’ (2005), is looking to reunite with his discovery once again for his forthcoming project.
According to Mid-day, Sarkar is planning to bring the story of Binodini Dasi, who was a 19th century courtesan, founded by famed artiste Girish Chandra Ghosh to act in a play. Dasi then went on to reign the theatre scene in Kolkata for a decade.
A source shared why Sarkar thinks Balan is the perfect choice for his next, “Pradeepda has approached Vidya Balan for the titular role. The role requires a powerhouse performer, so she is a natural choice. The movie will be an adaptation of the chapters from Noti Binodini’s autobiography, Amar Katha, in which she recounts how she was loved, betrayed and exploited by the men in her life.”
Vasant Thakkar will be producing the film, when asked about the film he said, “I have the rights of the book and am producing the film. The director is yet to be finalised.” However added he hasn’t confirmed the actress to play the role. “I haven’t reached out to any actress as yet.”
