Priyanka as Indra Gandhi: The most famous US filmmaker, Krishna Shah, is an Indian from origin. Being an Indian, he loves his country very much. Now he is considering making a biopic on the late Prime Minister Indra Gandhi. Firstly, Madhuri Dixit was approached to lead the role of late Prime Minister Indra Gandhi. But she backed out from the project on personal grounds, because her mother –in –law is not physically fit. Now Krishna ji is considering casting Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra in the lead role in a biopic on late Prime Minister Indra Gandhi. After going through the photographs of many Indian actresses, Shircore believes that Priyanka is the only Bollywood actress whom she can make look like Indira Gandhi after some prosthetic work on her face.
The film is titled as ‘Mother: The Indra Gandhi story’: The movie will be a big budget movie and it will be on the life of Indian woman leader who was known as ‘Iron Lady’ .The film is going to have two parts of the film. In the first part of the movie will be based on Indira Gandhi’s life till the 1971 war, while second part will look more into her personal life as a mother to her sons — Rajiv, who succeeded her as the prime minister, and Sanjay Gandhi. Shah is working on the casting with Academy Award winning make-up artiste Jenny Shircore. When asked to Mr. Shah he said’ “Yes, I am in conversation with Jenny who thinks that Priyanka is the one who can fit in the character of Indira, but it will be too premature to talk about casting as we have not approached anybody as yet”. Shah is also considering casting with other actors like Albert Finney, Emily Watson, Tom Hanks and Tommy Lee Jones to play other characters in the film. We think Mr. Shah must sign the Bollywood actress Priyanka without any doubts. As Priyanka has given many hit films like Umrao Jaan, Slaam-e- Ishq and Krish. She will definitely play a great role and as Jenny has also preferred Priyanka in spite of other actresses.
