Vidya Balan is about to enhance a screens as former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in a web series. Vidya will personify the role of the eminent politician in a web series based on Sagarika Ghose’s book, Indira: India’s Most Powerful Prime Minister. Though earlier it was said that why web series made instead of movie ,Vidya reportedly mentioned the reason .
Upholding the same, Vidya said, “There is too much material for it to 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 allotting to it. We are in the process of putting together a team.”
The show will be produced by Ronnie Screwvala. The web series may take a long time to get started as the material is still in the process to tack up. When quizzed if the makers would seek permissions from the Gandhi family before they begin filming, Vidya said that won’t be done as that they already have the rights of the book. It would be enthralling to see Vidya play such an important character in her work and role.
