Madhubala’s Sister Madhur Brij Bhushan To Take Legal Action Against Those Planning To Make Biopic On Legendary Actress: ‘Her Life Story Is My Family’s Emotional And Legal Right’
Madhubala is a legendary actress and her journey is quite inspiring, and it has urged many filmmakers to translate her life and give it a cinematic touch. The filmmakers want to make a biopic on the late actress’s life. Madhur Brij Bhushan, yesteryear actor’s younger sister who is also co-producing the film has warned the filmmakers to not work on any projects related to Madhubala’s life without her consent.

In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, she was quoted saying, “I request that no one should attempt any kind of project – based on or inspired by Madhubala – without my approval. Please don’t spoil this moment for us… If people don’t pay heed to my requests, I’ll have no other option but to take stern legal action and sue them for transgressing my family’s rights as well as such emotional and mental harassment. All those people who deal with such a project shall be dragged to court. I am a fighter, and will fight it out that way too.”




She further added, “Humne kya galat kiya hai (what wrong have we done)? It’s (Madhubala life story) my family’s emotional and legal right. At this age, my sisters and I are being harassed – mentally and emotionally, by some people. Kya yeh sahi hai (Is that fair)? It’s a request from my side to all those who are planning (to make any project on Madhubala’s life) to not move ahead with any such plans. There are many other subjects and personalities on whom beautiful films can be made.”

Earlier in July, there were reports that Madhubala's biopic will be made and co-produced by Madhubala Ventures Pvt Ltd and Brewing Thoughts Pvt Ltd. Reportedly Bollywood producer Tutu Sharma has taken up the challenge of creating a film on Madhubala's life while reports suggest that Imtiaz Ali is keen to develop a biopic on Madhubala's life.

Born as Mumtaz Jehan Begum Dehelvi, Madhubala entered films at the age of nine and worked in 1942 Basant and played lead at the age of 14 in 1947 Neel Kamal. The Mughal-E-Azam actress worked in 60 films and was one of the highest-earning film stars of her time in India. She went to the heavenly abode at the age of 36 on February 23, 1969.
