Vidya Balan on Indira Gandhi biopic: Too much material to be made into a film

“There is too much material for it be made into a film. So, we decided to turn it into a web series. We don’t know how many seasons we will be allotting to it. We are in the process of putting together a team,” says Balan, glad that her long-cherished dream of essaying one of the most powerful figures in Indian history is being realised.

 

Balan reveals that the ambitious project will be bankrolled by good friend Ronnie Screwvala. Given that their muse is as charismatic as she is controversial, the team is ensuring that the script does justice to Gandhi. “We have to do a lot more research. Developing the script will take long, as there is so much information on her. We can’t put a timeline as to when the project will go on floors.”

 

Ask her whether they will approach the Gandhi family for permission and she says, “We don’t require permission, as it’s based on a book and we have the rights to it.” Balan, who was recently appointed the brand ambassador of the Malta India Film Festival, says such platforms are essential for cinema. “It is encouraging to see our industry grow.”
