Vidya Balan to play Indira Gandhi in a web series
New Delhi, Aug 12 (UNI) Known for her unconventional roles, actress Vidya Balan is now all set to play former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in a web-series.
Vidya told about the reasons behind changing the decision of making a web series on Indira Gandhi instead of a film.
She said that her life journey is a long one and a film will not do justice to her story.
‘The number of seasons for the show too hasn’t been decided as yet, as everything including the script is in its initial stages,’ Vidya said.
She also mentioned that an extensive research needs to be done to get the story in place.
‘As for permissions it is not required from the Gandhi family. We are making the show based on a book,’ Vidya asserted.
The actress also confirmed in reports that the rights of the book have already been procured.
