The biopic trend is back in Bollywood and seems to continue for a little longer. Vidya Balan who is already shooting for a biopic based on human-computer, Shakuntala Devi, seems to be becoming a favorite among people even outside the Bollywood circle. Recently a biopic on late former external affairs minister, Sushma Swaraj was hitting the headline. In fact, in recent times, actress Taapsee Pannu also expressed her desire to play Sushma Swaraj onscreen.
But it seems like the lucky one would-be actress Vidya Balan, as late minister’s husband Swaraj Kaushal says he heard of Vidya and R Madhavan names floating for the same. During a recent twitter interaction, Swaraj revealed the news. His Tweet read, “They tell me even the cast - Vidya Balan with R.Madhvan and couple of other combinations. I believe Sushma Swaraj was a political leader - the youngest and bravest of all. Unfortunately, they are interested only in the romantic angle...... and that is so personal.”

Well, what do you think will Vidya and R. Madhavan give a nod to this project? Though from his tweet it is clear that filmmakers are more interested in Sushma Swaraj and her husband Swaraj Kaushal's personal life and their romance which Mr. Swaraj isn't really kicked to tell. He feels that Sushma Swaraj was a greater leader and her story is inspirational to be told to all and we completely agree with him.
Meanwhile, Vidya was recently awarded Youth Icon Award at The Imperial College in London. The actress shared a series of pictures on her Instagram, further thanked the institute for the award.
R.Madhavan is currently occupied with his upcoming venture Rocketry: The Nambi Effect produced and directed by him. This film is a biographical drama based on the life of Nambi Narayanan and set to release in 2020.
