Vidya Balan to play Indira Gandhi in biopic
Vidya Balan will play Indira Gandhi in an adaptation of journalist Sagarika Ghose’s book “Indira: India’s Most Powerful Prime Minister.” Ghose announced the news of signing a deed between her publisher, Juggernaut Books, and Vidya Balan through Twitter on Wednesday. Balan also confirmed the news in a recent statement that she was happy to have acquired the book rights because she always wanted to play Indira Gandhi. Balan said: “I haven’t decided yet whether it should be a film or a web series, but that will take a while anyway.” Ghose’s biographical book explores issues like the reasons behind the Emergency in 1975, Indira Gandhi’s failed marriage, her turbulent relationship with her son Sanjay, and her numerous political battles. Indira Gandhi has been played twice by Supriya Vinod, in Jabbar Patel’s “Yashwantrao Chavan” (2014) and Madhur Bhandarkar’s “Indu Sarkar” (2017).
