Vidya Balan to play Indira Gandhi on screen

Posted In: News Date:Jan 11th, 2018

Acclaimed Bollywood star Vidya Balan will play former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi onscreen in a project based on journalist-author Sagarika Ghose’s book Indira: India’s Most Powerful Prime Minister.

I am happy to have acquired the rights to Sagarika Ghose’s Indira: India’s Most Powerful Prime Minister, because I have always wanted to play Indira Gandhi. I haven’t decided yet whether it should be a film or a web series, but that will take a while anyway,” Vidya, a National Award winner, said in a statement on Tuesday. 

Ghose, elated about signing the contract, wrote, “Most excited to see ‘Indira’ on-screen!”
