It’s being said that renowned filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali is about to embark on his very first web-series and news has it that Richa Chadha has been approached for the female lead role.
Filmfare reports that Bhansali will be making the series independently for now but then will look to sell it on to an OTT platform. He’s said to have got in touch with Chadha but she’s not given her nod to the project as yet.
The show is also to have two male leads, as a source confirmed, “It’s a period drama rooted in a chapter of Indian history, with Bhansali sir serving as the creator and showrunner. Usually, tentpole projects are commissioned by streaming giants. But here, the filmmaker is said to be making it independently after which he will sell it to an OTT platform. The script is being developed while Bhansali sir zeroes in on the two male leads. Richa, who is keen to portray the female lead, has yet to sign on the dotted line”.
Chadha starred in Bhansali’s ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-leela’ in 2013.
