BOLLYWOOD actor Vidya Balan has done a variety of roles in her 15-year film career. After prolific roles like Lalita in Parineeta and Reshma in Dirty Politics, the starlet will now be taking up the role of former Indian prime minister Indira Gandhi, reported The Indian Express.
In a recent interview, the Kismat Konnection star revealed that she will be essaying Indira’s role in an upcoming web series, based on Sagarika Ghose’s book Indira: India’s Most Powerful Prime Minister.
There were speculations earlier about whether the book would be turned into a feature film, rather than a series. But Vidya explained that due to the large amount of text, producers decided to create a web series. “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 allotted to it. We are in the process of putting together a team,” said the actor.
