Vidya Balan Has All Set to Play Role Of Former Prime Minister Indra Gandhi

Tumhari Sulu actor Vidya Balan will play of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi 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!”

She also called Vidya an “ace”. The book, published by Juggernaut Books, is a no-holds-barred biographical portrait that looks for answers to lingering issues: from why Indira Gandhi revoked the Emergency to her son Sanjay’s curious grip over her; and from her bad marriage and love affairs to her dangerous religious politics.

In other tweets, Sagarika also revealed that she thinks that adapting the book to a web series would also be a good option, considering something like Netflix’s The Crown and House and Cards.
