Incidentally, there has been a lot of interest within the film industry around the biopic of Madhubala. The late actress’ sister Madhur Bhushan is keen on producing a film on the life and career of Madhubala. Not just that, there were reports that director Tigmanshu Dhulia wanted to make a biopic on Meena Kumari which was supposed to have Vidya Balan, who opted out of the project. Latest reports suggest that a web series is being planned on Meena Kumari’s dramatic life now.
While Kriti has expressed her desire to play the roles of these superstars actresses from the 60s, she also just recently turned muse for fashion designer Manish Malhotra for his ethnic collection. It would be interesting to see if Kriti’s ethnic avatars turn out to be precursors to her portrayals of Meena Kumari and Madhubala.
Right now she has multiple movies in the pipeline which include ‘Adipurush’ with Prabhas, ‘Ganpath’ with Tiger Shroff,’Bachchan Pandey’ with Akshay Kumar and ‘Bhediya’ with Varun Dhawan that is complete.
