Vidya Balan has been one the most popular choice for biopics. The actress, however, feels a little regretful about not being able to play Meena Kumari on screen.
“I would love to do a biopic on Meena Kumari. In all fairness, I was offered one right after The Dirty Picture but it was so soon, that I didn’t want to do it. May be Indira Gandhi, Meena Kumari, and M S Subbalakshmi. I came very close to playing her and it didn’t happen, so still hoping and praying that it happens someday,” said Balan, in an interview with Hindustan Times.
Talking about whether getting married in between her career changed things for her, Balan says, “All around us, nobody’s lives are stopping after marriage. The industry is a part of society so that’s bound to happen even with actresses. It’ a great thing that we are not pressing the pause button on our careers anyway, whether it is after marriage or child birth. We don’t need to prove to anyone that we are as dedicated. But yes, maybe we’re just more committed to ourselves.”
Balan was last seen in ‘Begum Jaan’ which released earlier this month.
